You know what they say, all good things must always come to an end, and the Symbian adventure on the Nokia train is on its last legs. To put it in a nutshell, the Nokia 808 PureView will be the last Symbian-powered device from Nokia, The folks over at Nokia mentioned, “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.”
Things have certainly changed over time, where the Symbian operating system on Nokia devices did play an integral role in the smartphone game in the past decade, although when the touchscreen revolution began with the iPhone in 2007, that was the beginning of the end. I am quite sure that many of you did have fond memories of the Nokia 9210 Communicator, not to mention the Nokia E71 that proved to be quite the winner, being the only decent competitor against the almighty BlackBerry collection then, too.
What is your fondest memory of Symbian?
