PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, that escalated quickly. I'm not entirely sure what to make of this, but I think Nokia has just revealed that Symbian is dead - dead as in, no more development. In a comment on a feature request for Symbian in Nokia's bug tracker, the company writes: "Thank you for your improvement ideas, thus Symbian is in maintenance mode and no new features will be implement without extremely good reason (business case). We have written down your ideas for future development if there is a chance that new features will be released." This means Symbian Belle FP2 is the last Symbian version. Odd, because Symbian devices are still being sold.

Wasn't it already released? I thought it was open sourced a while ago, only to be closed up again.

The development was closed, but once the code is opened it's a "cat out of the bag" thing of course: http://sourceforge.net/projects/symbiandump http://code.google.com/p/symbian-incubation-projects/ - so go ahead and grab it, if you can make sense of it and/or if you care (oh yeah, nobody really cared overall, NVM if it was open...)
