A published report says that Nokia is sending its final shipment of Symbian phones out to stores this summer; despite putting much more money into marketing its Windows Phone line, it wasn't until Q4 of 2012 that Nokia's Windows Phone sales surpassed sales of the Finnish OEM's Symbian handsets.

You are entitled to you own fantasy. Meanwhile back in reality, WP is a downgrade from Symbian.

I never claimed otherwise. But back in reality, Nokia is thriving with WP8, and Symbian is dead.

I love Symbian phones. I spent my childhood with Symbian devices like n73, n95, w950. I'm using Nokia X7 and I'm very satisfied, beacause for low price i got outstanding design, build quality, stereo speakers, fast os with great multitasking. My previous phone was Nokia X6 - my mum uses it as a secondary device, phone works perfectly, and battery life is the same as it was almost 3 years ago.

Nokia 808 is the most interesting device on the market, but I can't afford it right now. I hope I'll be able too buy it before it disappears...

I enjoyed a lot with my N72. Thanks Nokia, bye Symbian (such a great OS), we'll miss you.
