Symbian OS of Nokia Officially Dead: Goodbye to the first Smart Operating System

The World of Mobile Phones was once large brick phones with small screen and limited functions. There was a time when having a mobile with games was a privilege. Symbian Operating System of Nokia changed it all. After 10 years of service, the Symbian Officially Retired

            The Symbian OS came in Phones earlier phones like Nokia 6600 and with time and change in technology being incorporated into the Phones; the Symbian OS was modified to manage powerful Cameras and Touch Devices.


Nokia today announced their profitable Q4 sales of 2012 and with it dropped the bombshell of Symbian Discontinuity

During our transition to Windows Phone through 2012, we continued to ship devices based on Symbian. The Nokia 808 PureView, a device which showcases our imaging capabilities and which came to market in mid-2012, was the last Symbian device from Nokia.

The Symbian Operating System was the Operating System that used to be run on phones that were first to be called Smartphones. With different free apps and Games available for the OS, the Symbian was the dominant operating system during the early 2000s. The Symbian was the only real competitor of the BlackBerry OS and but it could never really challenge the BlackBerry Messenger Service offered by RIM.

The Nokia Pureview 808 was the Last Official Phone to come with the Symbian OS. The 41 Megapixel Camera phone was the evidence of the fact that Symbian had evolved a lot. This Operating System Took Nokia to the top of the Chain in the Mobile Phone Market. Only the arrival of iOS and Later Android killed the Symbian with 2012 seeing only 2.6% smartphones on Symbian and 76% on Android.

Do you still have Symbian? Well it is time to Shift to Windows Phone
