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.

Linux is the best option for any new phone. It doesn't make sense for any company, including Nokia, to invest in anything else, since it takes gazillion dollars to develop such software.

You mean Apple ;-)


Google's Android is still Linux - it's just not GNU/Linux.

Apple is successful not because of the iOS kernel - but because of the overall presentation of the phone, including the hardware. Android vendors failed to present a UI experience that matches or surpasses that of Apple. If Apple knows one thing is how to make UIs for the masses.
