PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So the writing is on the wall. In a very bold move, Nokia's new CEO, Stephen Elop, has decided to fully ditch Nokia's migration plan for the past few years and have the company embrace his former employer's operating system, Windows Phone 7, instead. This noticeably implied getting rid of two competitors, Symbian and the upcoming MeeGo, which were both put on the road to slow death. This article aims at saying goodbye to an old citizen of the mobile space who's now heading to its grave: Symbian. (Warning: Rant ahead)

Actually use it every day

I have a Nokia phone from 2003, it has had no issues all this time, I use it every day. I actually owned a few other phones after this one, they all died.

The phone after the one I use now was also Nokia/Symbian but was of worse quality. So I think phones might just be getting less attention to detail by their manufacturers.

One died within one week and I knew from just using it in that week it was actually worse than the others that came before it.

My Nokia phone from 2003 even has support for IPv6 supposedly (never tried though, because I need a provider with IPv6 because it has no wifi !).
