  1. Samsung has made a post on the Samsung Mobile Innovator site and sent an e-mail to registered Symbian developers advising them that Symbian is going away. The last Symbian handset from Samsung, the Omnia HD, was released in 2009. Nokia, easily the biggest Symbian supporter, just started shipping its last Symbian device: the Nokia N8.

  2. If mighty Symbian can't even compete with a lowly Microsoft mobile OS, what chance is there that Palm OS will see any measurable success? HP's acquisition of Palm looks dumber & dumber by the day.
  3. @Guest Yeah right..... first off WP7 is nowhere near lowly. It will be the premier mobile content provider of games number one and this is where it's power lies in having created the only successful online gaming community on the planet in Xbox Live! ....that's 40 Million strong in and of itself.

    Now as to Palm OS? haha... HP hasn't even got their claws into the company yet. It's not like they are Microsoft with Danger acquisition creating a civil war within it's own ranks. Now all those people are gone and Danger as well. Danger was actually an awesome company when Andy Rubin owned it and you do know Andy also created Android and still works for Google right? And most of all it's not Palm OS fool, it's called WebOS and it's a clean ground up designed OS like Android. But unlike Android, it does not rely on a Java clone for applications!

    Obviously you're a CrApple Fascist iNazi talking shizt about all other OS compared to iOS that is just a bastard child of OS-X made by the same control company that took a dive in the 90's with another control freak push of MacOS. Where is it? Microsoft killed it with an OS that was cross platform. Like what both Android and WP7 are! :D ...the Future is always Open! haha....

    Hooray for the death of Symbian! Worst platform ever! It's like the coding equivalent of the qwerty keyboard (where the design is done deliberately to slow you down).

    Given todays phones its amazing a OS like Symbian has survived this long. Performance wise it was pretty good but since the iPhone OS and Android came out, Symbian has just looked outdated
