As promised Nokia opens the Symbian source code to everyone. Theoretically, this could attract potential developers. In fact, everyone already doubts that this OS has any serious future.
Declaring a new "party course" new CEO Nokia Stephen Elop made one very serious mistake - called Symbian completely obsolete system, from which it is time to abandon. These words were immediately picked up by the media, as a result of which the OS, which was already gradually losing fans, became completely uninteresting for developers, who switched all their efforts to much more interesting ones. iOS и Android. Even such a coolly received Windows 7 now looks much more attractive Symbian.
AT Nokia realized their mistake and urgently started a company in which they claim that they do not plan to abandon their time-tested OS at all. They say for a couple of years it will definitely be supported. It also talks about plans to sell at least 150 million devices under Symbianbefore it finally vanishes into the dustbin of history.
Here are just a few of the analysts (and not only analysts) believe in this. And few people already hide doubts about the fact that open source can somehow help this OS of yesterday.
Anyone can get the source codes on the official website Symbian. All that is required for this is to register.
