There has been rumors flying around lately that Symbian Ltd might be quitting soon! Symbian OS fund is really low at the moment, and they don’t have much resources to resolve this case.
Symbian has been losing its supporters in the last years – including Sony Ericson, Motorola, and Samsung – that now they have only Nokia to rely on. And seeing Nokia itself are facing problems, employees quitting, might not be a good sign for both Symbian and Nokia.
So currently two questions are in the minds of Symbian/Nokia owners: Will they receive the update for Symbian^3 that Nokia said that they’ll be releasing early this year? And, will they make it and release Symbian^4 in mid 2011 as planed?
Who are to blame? My personal opinion says “the developers”, they couldn’t make a better and a more modern OS that competes with todays mobile OS’s that they lost their supporters to Android OS! … You can blame Android/Google if you want to, it’s the evil company after all! 😉
