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.

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!

They're labeled Smart Phones but counted as Mobile Devices. Else, they would've shown the 9.3 million Asha Touch phones as part of the 6.6 million (4.4 Lumia, 2.2 Symbian)

A combination of Series 40 and Lumia devices will save Nokia.

Lumia is still jst a moneyhole for nokia, but i hope you are right.

If that company came down and microsoft got to buy the patents, it would ruin the free market and competition would fizzle out once more, just like it did on the PC.

S30, S40, S60, S80

What are you even trying to say here, what is your point with that post? It's nonsensical to group them like that - 30, 40 are different than 60, 80 (the two which are based on Symbian).

And whatever Nokia wants to call Belle, technically it's still very much Symbian.
