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'm sorry, but your comment just isn't coherent. Nokia has actually shown modest growth in their Lumia lineup both YoY and QoQ. I'm unsure what you mean that they've failed.

Failed to capture a majority marketshare? I could've told you that in 2011. Mobile growth like this doesn't happen overnight when you need to bootstrap a brand and an ecosystem.

What Nokia has needed since day 1 has been to be in a better financial situation (They are in one now) so that they can iterate on Lumia and establish mindshare.

Window Phone marketshare in Europe is surging, varying from 6-12% depending on the region. The two biggest difficulties are the US Market and China.

US I think they'll see decent sequential increases if the rumors are true and they launch a flagship on Verizon.

China it depends on how they execute, but I'm optimistic.
