PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, this was inevitable. After Samsung and Sony Ericsson abandoning Symbian for their line of smartphones, and after Symbian Foundation executive director Lee Williams leaving the company for "personal reasons", there's now a report that the Symbian Foundation is winding down its operations, in preparation for closing up shop entirely.

Exactly, by this reports, Symbian might actually become "Nokia OS" so to speak.

It effectively already is. Because everyone else has backed out of Symbian.

Well, that's a bit thin since the two are inextricably linked. It raises a lot of serious questions about the future of the platform and whether Nokia is really contemplating going it alone.
