Nokia Will Stand by Symbian

Nokia today indicated that, despite a fundamental shift in the way the Symbian Foundation will operate moving forward, that Nokia's relationship to Symbian as an operating system is unchanged. The Symbian Foundation will cease to independently manage Symbian and will instead become a licensing operation, doling out Symbian software to licensees. Nokia said that it plans to continue to invest in and develop Symbian internally, and will continue to bring Symbian handsets to market. Nokia says that developers interested in Symbian need to use Qt, and can find support through its Forum Nokia developer organization. Nokia believes that it will be able to provide faster feature updates to the Symbian platform independent of full OS upgrades with its new architecture.

Nokia is Beating a Dead Horse...

Everyone everywhere HATES Symbian... It's not user friendly, it causes any device to have horrible battery life (because of the multitasking). For example, I had the N75, because at the time it was "amazing", unfortunately after about 10 minutes of web browsing(or youtube) it would say low memory and I would have to completely power-cycle the device to get the darn thing to want to keep Surfing.

Other devices i have read that issue on; 5800, N95, e71, e71x, e62, n93... So it wasn't my phone it is the Operating system. There is no reason to keep this OS going, just admit loss and move on to smaller (because Symbian was nothing but bloatware) and better things
Disagree. There are plenty of problems with Symbian but unpopularity and battery life are not among them.

(Low RAM, on the other hand, is.)
