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.

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.

Would make more sense from a business perspectiver to give up on Lumia and shift resources to Asha to stay competative in the low-price segment that brings in the needed money else they lose that too and what stays is the moneyhole only.
