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)

Sorry, I fear I'm too young to have met this variant of Symbian ;) I've heard some facts about it in several places (including that it ran NetHack), but have never even read an in-depth review of it. By the time I started having a look at Nokia's Symbian phones, UIQ was already dead.

So obviously, I didn't thought about it when writing the article either.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_5110

I am not even 21 yet, and that was my first phone (hand-me-down from my mother)

You would have to be 15 or so to be too young?

I remember having a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_2650 at 15, and it was relatively similar.

At least one of these runs s40, according to Wikipedia. For the 5110, I think wiki's photograph is inaccurate because phones like this one weren't common anymore when I was in high school.
