Nokia Makes Symbian Closed Source

first_imgNokia is slowly stepping away from Symbian. Nokia has stated that Symbian would be dropped, but the first step in the process is to end the open source version. Nokia has just released info that from now on until Nokia ends the use of Symbian, it will be closed source. This is bad news for those who used Nokia Symbian phones just for that purpose. Nokia is making the switch due to the partnership with Microsoft for future phones. However, Nokia plans to slowly halt all Symbian connects over time. No word on how much longer Nokia will work with Symbian. Nokia also did not disclose when the new license would take effect. Via Ars Technicalast_img
