PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Buried deep within Nokia's press release about its financial results, there's a line that pretty much signals the end of one of the most popular and successful mobile operating systems in history. With Nokia retiring its use, Symbian is no more.

I have not counted the number of applications for Windows Phone, nor do I intend to but I really did not hear about an "omg, you must have this program on your phone dude!" kind of application for it. Is there one?

The whole point of having Metro shoved into our desktops was for developers to make stuff that would almost "automagically" work on the Windows Phone devices. So far, nothing notable happened.

What was the net benefit to Nokia for killing Symbian, selling Qt? Some quick money for the latter and constant cash from MS for sticking to WP. What will they do when that stops? Short of a miracle, Windows Phone will go the way of the Zune.
