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)

The low-end Android phones don't have to be that bad. My X10 Mini gets four days when only idling (or a few hours of Angry Birds), it's fairly snappy, but only 600 MHz. Of course, I've tweaked it a bit with a new home screen and using link2sd to save memory, and the modest QVGA screen means it doesn't have to push so many pixels.

It costs less than the cheapest netbooks.
