0. phoneArena 07 Oct 2013, 23:38 posted on
Nokia had already begun winding down support for Symbian and MeeGo as it went all in on Windows Phone; and, now that Microsoft is in the process of attempting to purchase Nokia there isn't really much hope that either Symbian or MeeGo could make a comeback. Today, Nokia made it official though, announcing when support for the platforms will officially end...

No i own a N8 and a N9, a week ago i bought the 1020.
I must say WP is fast and smooth but it lacks features and settings that Symbian and Meego has!

WP better than Symbian... No... May be better than S40...

I hate to break it to you but... it isn't, I can do so much more on my 808 PureView than I ever was on the lumia 920

I can do more on my desktop full tower, but what's the point bragging about something big and bulky? Your 808 is barely what I would consider mobile technology...

Okay...but what OS does Asha has then?

Essentially its own, derived from Series 40 but with enough differences to make it its own.

So that's the official end of line for my N9 and my still perfect N79...
MeeGo really has(or had) a potential to become a true android competitor with Nokia's developer and consumer backing...
And Symbian S60V3 was the best non-touch smartphone OS in my view...

Goodbye Symbian, I don't miss you! :)

If only windows phone can have half of Symbian's customizability option. RIP Symbian, you've had your moments of greatness.

Too soon. One year and a quarter ago Nokia released last symbian device, that means, that there are still people, who bought this device and have warranty on it.
