I can't believe Symbian allowed themselves to do this. I can only imagine the people at the top of the organisation are getting some hefty wedge of cash and couldn't give a shit about the company.
I give it 18 months before the idiots at Nokia say "You know, giving this software away for free is actually costing us a bloody fortune. Fuck it. Kill it." It will only take a new CEO with a different (i.e cost-cutting) mind-set to kill Symbian stone dead.
Talk about putting your eggs in one basket. Sheesh. What have you done Symbian?
Farewell Psion/Symbian. You truly were world class innovaters, of the like we won't see in a long long time. Your products were innovative, quirky, reliable and joyful to use. I mourn your loss. The last British innovator, (along with Inmos and Sinclair Research) gone. RIP.
