Nokia is the founder of Symbian OS and also its biggest promoter. But now Symbian OSNokia has decided not to use Symbian OS in its further mobile phone devices. Nokia is backing off from Symbian OS because users have criticized a lot about slow operation and same old GUI (Graphical User Interface). Nokia has found other alternatives like Maemo OS that Nokia is using in its Internet Tablets. Symbian OS was a great platform with series like S60, S40, and UIQ etc. Symbian OS has been extensively used in many Nokia mobile phones but almost all Symbian phones are slow and become a victim of many problems. The recent phones that Nokia made like Nokia 5800 and N97 were not able to
capture the market and Nokia being the market leader can’t afford inadequate services to its customers. The Symbian OS was not the first OS to be used in handheld devices, but it was the most popular. Many third party applications were available for the Symbian OS which will definitely not supported by Maemo OS. The new Nokia phones will be better in response time, application flexibility and user interface. The downfall of Symbian market will surely pose threats to Symbian developers.
