they have always said they "hoped" to have a Windows Phone device out in 2011, so it is likely that between 10 and 12 of these devices will run Symbian (one may also run Meego - they promised a Meego device this year).
Given the UI updates planned etc, Symbian will be around receiving new development for probably 2-5 more years, depending on how Windows Phone works out and the speed other languages/ countries can use Windows Phone services (Symbian supports something like 60 languages, Windows Phone something like 6).
This sort of news is also making me hold off a bit on getting an C7/Astound

60 languages. That really hits home how much of a giant Nokia is.

6 smartphones, 4 WP7 (2 C2), 2 Symbian...
2 Windows 8 Tablets (1 Intel, 1 ARM)
Apple is having only 2, can't you do with less?
Languages have nothing to do with this.

Still waiting on the Meego powered N950.
Sleeping screen looks like Android life wall paper! Kind of cool.
