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.

Its 1/4 billion and includes
* cheap dumps of WP7 Lumia written off in Q3 already.
* one-time incomes like RIM's patent-payments, sold headquarter and other assets like patents.
* WP8 and Asha channel stuffing, xmas sells, etc
* First time since 150 years no dividend was payed saving 700 million.

Also this was the last quarter Nokia got money from Microsoft. From now on Nokia has to pay the regular WP license fees.

I expect Q1 will be lose again. Call me wrong when we have the numbers.
