Nokia Declared Nokia 808 PureView to be the last Symbian Masterpiece – No more Symbian Smartphones in future…

Nokia 808 PureView - Last Symbian Belle Smartphone from Nokia
Nokia has recently released its earnings PDF document which states Nokia 808 PureView to be the last Symbian Smartphone from Nokia. Sigh… there will be no more beautiful, innovative and most reliable Symbian smartphones from Nokia to rock this world :(. Symbian has been officially declared to be dead and the credit of destroying beautiful & reliable Symbian & MeeGo OS goes to Nokia’s current chief executive officer “Mr. Stephen Elop” who had make strategic partnership / alliance with Microsoft to bring up Lumia’s Windows Phones to replace Symbian as their primary OS. Regarding software updates, Nokia had promised to deliver Symbian software updates & support up to 2016. On the other hand Nokia is also planning to block an open access to Nokia Device Firmwares which are available on NaviFirm, in order to protect exclusive Microsoft’s Windows Phone firmware images.

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.

Now the core focus of Nokia is towards Lumia Windows Smartphones while its also working on Asha Series 40 (S40) phones. The company now terms S40 Java phones as their fast 1Ghz smartphones for emerging markets, while for established markets its core focus is Lumia Windows Phone. N8 Fan Club’s team isn’t happy at all to deliver this news. Most recent and popular Windows Phone from Nokia to date is Nokia Lumia 920. Nokia is also planning to come up with “something very cool” in next PureView technology.

What do you guys think? Nokia should have continued with multiple platforms like other companies are currently doing? Lumia Windows Phones primary, Symbian + S40 + MeeGo should have at-least secondary priority? Example of Samsung is already infront of us, where they are continuing with multiple platforms including Android, Bada, Windows Phone and upcoming Tizen (MeeGo – recently ditched by Nokia). Which Nokia Devices are you looking forward to buy in future? Will you purchase Nokia 808 PureView just right now as the last Symbian masterpiece from Nokia?

    • You hate android because you don’t try it before some months I was say the same…..but now I change my mine

  • I hope nokia will fulfil it’s promise by keeping symbian phone with relevant update, so that they will be competing against the current smart phones.

  • Nokia, you are so strong. Why you are give up from something that is really your. Why?

  • The symbian is dead years now I buy the 700 before some months and then I buy a android phone then the Nokia go to the box and it close for months… Years front of the Nokia the android are.. The only problem the ram it open all the apps and they don’t close…. Put your Nokia in to the boxes and buy android

  • i love symbian,but i hate windows os.symbian is very friendly os.i buy nokia 701 some months ago and i love it.Mr.stepan Elop should be suspended to his job for disconnect symbian.

  • i was a n8 fqn since the beginnibg . It ‘ s camera , storage n even the processor outsmarted every single OS at the time n i ditched it about a week ago n hanging put with 701 now . I was just hoping and praying that nokia would at least quit on symvian after releasing a similar set to N8 with bigger processor , screen n storage in lesser price than the 808 for me to buy but …sigh . I just hope Nokia , You Kbow where You ‘ re Headed 🙁

  • The symbian
    i am using nokia mobile last 10 years
    and in this year’s i was use many mobile like, android , ios and windows but the nokia symbian is very best with nokia Hardware . It is make for echa other

    the window os is good option but it take many many time for improving.

    So i will go android after use of symbian.

  • For me there is only one reason to like nokia and that is its Symbian OS…After leaving symbian nokia will be eloped frm market and stephen elope wll be the reason behind it.I wll go for android probably sony xperia….I am using n8 and I was planning to replace it with nokia 808 but I wll have to change my plan….Love you symbian

  • I’ve always endorsed Symbian as the most stable and reliable OS, if not the most fun, to my friends. Damn, Nokia! Android is fun, but full of bugs! Windows mobile OS don’t have a freaking file manager!!!!!

  • I´m symbian since N73, gone trough N80, N85, N95 and N8 (two batteries now and still refuses to change). I did´ t found a better smartphone at the time. But is over now, I´ ll get the most of my N8 until this new batt dies and then Nokia is dead… I´ ll never get into windows phone, it is enough having to use microsoft on the PC. So Android, you are next… and that is the big winner… ANDROID
