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 aws the Symbian (and all derivatives) are killed and wiped off the board, there will be two remaining platforms that Nokia will put all their attention to:
- Windows Phone 8 for the developed countries
- Series40 for the rest of the world.

No, there's also Series30, in the lowest cost handsets.

Of course, current S30 handsets don't support 3rd party j2me apps, so the picture for the devs is as you described.
