There's a good chance you've never heard of Symbian, the smartphone software created by Finnish giant Nokia. It's one of the most popular of smartphone platforms, but not in the US, where Nokia has very little market share. The company plans to make a comeback in the American market with a line of phones running Microsoft's Windows Phone 7, and today Nokia announced that it's dropping Symbian phones, as well as cheap "feature phones" from its US product lineup. It's total commitment to Windows Phone 7.
Nokia Inc. President Chris Weber said in an interview. “It will be Windows Phone and the accessories around that. The reality is if we are not successful with Windows Phone, it doesn’t matter what we do (elsewhere).”
