Nokia «kill» Symbian this summer?


“The Last of the Mohicans”: Cameraphone Nokia PureView 808

According to a recent article published in the Journal of Financial Times, the Finnish Nokia is going to “kill” the Symbian operating system this summer, that is, without waiting for 2016 , when there is no official support for it (as earlier reports said Stephen Elop). While this information is not officially confirmed by most Nokia, but publishing is more inclined to just such a development.

During the first quarter of 2013, the company sold 500,000 smartphones running on on Symbian. Sales of Nokia devices running Windows Phone 8 can not be called impressive, but nevertheless they are growing. Therefore, Nokia has decided to remove from the market a platform which she said could prevent albeit still slow but steady growth in popularity of Windows Phone.

According to a representative Nokia, the transition to Windows Phone 8 as a key platform has become a very correct decision. At least such a conclusion can be drawn from the following statement:

“It took 22 months to develop a Symbian-phone. In the case of Windows Phone it took less than a year. Now we do not waste time digging around in the source code, and are working to create more and better functionality associated with photographs, maps, music, and applications in general, that is, those things that are aimed at improving the quality of end user experience. ”

Again, Nokia has not yet confirmed that it will stop support for the Symbian platform this year. However, the company has previously said that the smartphone Nokia PureView 808 is the latest device running this platform, released by the company.
