It's not Nokia Symbian, it's just Symbian, there are other vendors using Symbian and Symbian is controled by the Symbian Foundation, not Nokia

According to wikipedia:

Symbian Ltd. was established in 98 as a partnership between Ericsson, Nokia, Motorola, and Psion.
Symbian Ltd. made Symbian OS, which is the predecessor to Symbian.
Nokia bought the shares they didn't own in 2008, and the Symbian Foundation was founded the same year.
In 2009, Nokia's Symbian professional services department,which was not transferred to the Symbian Foundation, was sold to the Accenture consulting company.

The Symbian Foundation is a non-profit organisation, founded by Nokia, Sony Ericsson, NTT DoCoMo, Texas Instruments, Vodafone, Samsung, ST Ericsson and AT&T.
The aim of the Symbian Foundation is to publish the Symbian platform royalty-free under the open source Eclipse Public License.
