Nokia Makes Symbian Source Code Available Again
Too little too late
As far as the smartphone conversation, symbian is definately a smart OS. It works great for non-touch devices. Anyone that has used an n95 or similar nokia device knows that symbian is a good OS when combined with the right hardware. However, symbian on the nokia touch devices was not so hot.
The n8 is a very capable piece of Hardware, but the OS is just lacking. But at this point, it biggest weakness is the lack of available apps. Everyone wants apps and everyone has them except nokia. I don't know if windows will fix nokia's problems. MS has little to lose in this market while NOkia has everyone on the line. I don't understand why they couldn't just pull an HTC and experiment with devices on multiple OS's and see what sells.
