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.

There will always be a place in my heart for Symbian. It was one of the reasons why I bought the Nokia 808. Partly to add it to my collection and the other is I really wanted to own the last Symbian phone. I've owned every Communicator after 2000. While everyone was buying Windows phones I used a 9500 and then a year later I moved to the 9300. I was part of the Pilot program for the E90, receiving it a whole 6 months before it's release in 2007, it was plauged by software problems however. A few months later I would be swept off of my feet by a new breed of phone though, T-Mobile G1. I always kept a Symbian phone in my bag of tricks though. I had a N97, E7 and now the 808. I've always liked Nokia phones, it's one of those companys who isn't afraid of radical thinking. My favorite phone of all time the Nokia N9 came from such ideas. I look on Ebay everyday to hope to find the developers edition of the N9, the N950. I already found the very rare White N9 with 64GB of ram and I even heard there were are a few 1.5 GHZ models floating around. My ultimate phone would be the Nokia E7 or N950's body with the internals and OS of the Nexus 4.

You are not alone with monitoring places to catch a N950. The last I saw on ebay change owner for over $2000 (!!). Freaking awesome and way to much for my pocket. I never will understand why it wasn't regulary sold. The demand for a qwerty-N9 was and still is very high.
