PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In an ill omen for Symbian fans, the publisher of Symbian-Guru is abandoning the platform: "As of today, I will no longer be updating, and will be purchasing an Android-powered smartphone - my new Nexus One should arrive tomorrow. I've been a Nokia fanboy since 1999, and a Symbian fanboy since I got my Nokia 6620 in summer of 2004. Since then, I've personally owned 10+ different Symbian-powered smartphones, and have reviewed nearly every Symbian-powered smartphone that's been released in the past 3 years or so. I've tried to use all of Nokia's various products and services to the best of my ability, and I just can't do it anymore." His post continues with an exploration of the sorry state of Symbian and Nokia that only a once-true-believer could have written.

To be honest I'm more interested into Meego.
This thing running on an old vax, your netbook, and smartphones, that's pretty cool. It's also more like a true Linux compared to Android.

Symbian had it's time but it looks aged, user-interface wise, Nokia's attempts to resurrect it didn't not work out very well.
