PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Buried deep within Nokia's press release about its financial results, there's a line that pretty much signals the end of one of the most popular and successful mobile operating systems in history. With Nokia retiring its use, Symbian is no more.

Now that Nokia add 16mln SYMBIAN devices (Asha) to its "Smartphone" sales they go and kill Symbian.

Lots of logic.

Anyway, they kill Symbian on "Smartphones" but on feature phones its still The King for Nokia.

Unless Nokia CEO want to back off from that profitable segment too... (And stay with 22% loss making WinP ...)

You don't seem to know much about Nokia and their offerings. Asha handsets (and Nokia "feature phones" in general) are Series 40, which is NOT Symbian.

S30, S40, S60, S80. However. Symbian isn't Symbian any longer either. Its name Nokia BelleOS now. Its also not S40 (according to marketing) but Nokia Asha and some of the Asha's are even labeled Smartphones now. Wait till Nokia is renamed to NOK after selling off the IA for cash!
