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 $250 million profit

Starting now Nokia doesn't get cash each quarter from Mirosoft any longer and Nokia needs to pay Microsoft in minimum $250 million each quarter for WP licenses. See Q4 report.

Also Nokia sold its headquarter for $200m. They cannot repeat that.
Nokia got $65 millions from RIM. A one-time happening too.

There goes the profit and comes the lose again in Q1.
