Nokia cancels Symbian Carla, Belle FP2 to be the last Symbian?

Nokia’s Symbian sales have plunged last quarter significantly, and now Nokia Italy has revealed that Symbian Carla, the third major update after Symbian Anna and Nokia Belle, is cancelled. At least that's what Nokia's Product Marketing Manager Mathias Fiorin has said, according to Nokialino, an Italian Nokia fan site, that allegedly got the info straight from the horse's mouth.
“the burning platform” will be Nokia Belle Feature Pack 2.We'd still reserve the usual grain of salt at hand until we hear an official announcement by the Finns, but if true, this will mean that Symbian is fading away quicker than expected. We don’t know whether there’s a direct connection between Symbian sales and the update plans, but in either case, news is that the last update to
That’s what we’ll have instead of Carla, and probably some of the improvements Nokia planned will end up there, but the decision to go with another feature pack rather than a brand new version hints that the changes will be minor.
And when it comes to the future of Symbian, it seems that now we can put to rest hopes about Symbian Donna that was supposed to support 720p displays and dual-core processors on Nokia’s good old platform. The focus seems to have shifted almost fully on Windows Phone.

Android is a mess for normal people. My cousin ask me to show him how to make a video call Lol. I was searching his phone but still not got it so i recommended him skype to make a video call. Can anyone tell me how to make video call without any 3rd party application on Android......? Android is good but only with quads and dual cores but has a lag.

I find it hard to believe that comment #16 has more thumbs-up than thumbs-down... especially since it refers to 'dump peoples'... I mean, Android extremists being just as ignorant as iOS extremists... who'd 've guessed!?! I think I'll try to help "equalize" that "situation" there...

Your problem is that Android allows third party apps to remain in their App Store so people have a choice. Apple just buys one, integrates it and then kicks out the competition for competing against them. Skype is a joke compared to the multiple Apps out there for Video Calling. You not being able to find out how is not Android's fault. It's you being a n00b.

[Darth Vader voice] NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! :( I hope this is wrong or that they change their minds.Symbian still has some life to live, and plenty to improve upon until there's a wider range of Windows Phones from Nokia
