Goodbye, Symbian, and thanks for the pie. That's the message Nokia is sending to the once popular mobile operating system as its preps one final shipment of Symbian smartphones this summer before investing its efforts entirely into its relationship with Microsoft and the Windows Phone platform. It's a bit of a... Read more...
It's a little sad, really. Both Symbian and MeeGo held so much promise, and in the case of the former, there's still significant market share out there using the product. But Nokia has to move on, despite their roots, and some earlier announced plans are finally falling into place. Nokia and Accenture have closed the... Read more...
Mozilla has been working hard on adapting its Firefox browser for mobile devices, with an increasing focus on a browser just for tablets. That browser, named Fennec, has now started appearing in "nightly build" form for developers. "It has now reached a functional state that is good enough for getting some early feedback," said Mozilla developer... Read more...
Nokia may not be giving Symbian their full faith and support, but there were obviously a lot of Symbian phones in the pipeline prior to the mega announcement earlier in the year to switch over to Windows Phone 7.

The company just... Read more...
MeeGo started out with such promise. It was a combined effort between Nokia and Intel, and it looked like it would soon become the go-to operating system for tablets and MIDs in the years ahead. But then, something happened. Something called iOS and Android, two operating systems that found their way onto tablets and have since dominated the... Read more...
It's a very interesting time for Nokia. They brought in a Microsoft exec to be their CEO, and then they switched operating systems to Windows Phone 7.

Here's a little confirmation to what's really going on between Symbian and Nokia. For years now, Nokia has largely been the only phone maker to even use the Symbian phone operating system platform.

There was a time in AT&T's history where the carrier had no Android phones to speak of. They carried the iPhone, a few BlackBerry phones and a few Symbian phones. Android was nowhere to be found. It all started a few months back, and ever since AT&T got friendly with Android, they have been picking up new... Read more...
Nokia can go ahead and check off "Phase One" on its grand plan of storming the smartphone market and propelling itself into relevance.
