They will definitely give as much support as they will get payed for. And when Symbian is not a priority for Nokia anymore, we can expect that support will be lower and lower and lower.
How much support has SE Symbian users after SE abandoned Symbian?

Am I a prophet or is this a really old news ? Okay, now it's finalized, but the news itself was well known :
Nothing new about Symbian, you present the support until 2016 as a good news...

Well done microsoft you have taken fantastic revenge in killing symbian by keeping pseudo president at nokia. Symbian kept windows out of smartphone arena for such a long period. Notorious microsoft has placed a trojan horse to nokia to kill symbian. The redmond company aiming to establish on the ashes of symbian. But it has to understand that because of this android has established itself as defacto choice for the consumers. Recently launched belle would have given a stiff fight to android if planned path not disturbed. Whatever that one individual who was sent on purpose has done to nokia indirectly helped android to become no1 os. But windows will never ever become serious os. One thing is certain that no one will dominate ever again like symbian did.

So Accenture is there to only support existing users and not really focus on further developing the OS??

What support for Meego? Last update was almost 2 years ago!
i own a N9, Meego is a great OS, too bad they killed it. Now i use a 1020 and i must say WP is limited OS wise, it lacks some features and settings.
