Hilarious. Please explain why Nokia killed Symbian if it wasn’t already slain by the iPhone. Symbian was regarded as great stuff in 2007. I had readers telling me that Apple would be stupid to introduce a mobile phone that wasn’t just Symbian with a personality layer on top. The whole industry was behind Symbian apart from North America’s Palm/WiMo/BBry.
Two years later Symbian was dead. I find your historical revisionism entertaining though.
Daniel, the CEO of Nokia released a statement saying they were killing Symbian, the sales of Symbian phones basically died from this moment. The Sales of Symbian phones were still increasing up to this moment.
Symbian was a capable OS, which needed some work, but the mighty people from the USA (who, remember, only make up 4% of the worlds population decided they didn't like Symbian, so no one should), Nokia had options, they could have continued with it, they could have continued with Meego, but no, they announced they would stop development. This is what killed Symbian.
