Back in October, Samsung had announced their plans of dropping any kind of support for the Symbian OS and it looks like the time has finally arrived. The Samsung Lab for developers had closed back in October and the Symbian forum with any content that’s related to the Symbian OS will be trashed today, according to IntoMobile.
Samsung is officially not going to use the platform that many of the Indian mobile users are so familiar with. This gives an interesting perspective as to what Nokia will actually do with the Symbian OS. If they still have faith in the Indian market, chances are they might just not give up on it. After all, Nokia certainly did rule the market a few years back. Agreed that it’s not the same now, but you cannot rule out their chances of making a comeback with feature-packed phones that are also priced well. Most importantly, these phones should have something new to offer in terms of the operating system.
What Nokia does in the future is still to be seen. They can switch to MeeGo, Maemo or upgrade the Symbian OS with some new and better functionality. All this will be unveiled next year so it promises to be an interesting one! Happy New Year to one and all!
