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.

Go check data first.

Nokia grew (in smartphones) 10% in the last 6 months.

(Smartphone) Industry in same 6 months? 57%.

2y ago Nokia had 29% of SMARTPHONE market.

Now ? 3%

Its fastest demise for any company from Top500 list.

And before you are happy with "profitability"

Avrg. loss made per (Smartphone) handset is around 22%...

Nokia LOSE 1/5 of the price of each Smartphone it sell.
And they do not have stockpile of HQ's for sale.
