..I suspect they might have left this one too long. The time to slap some life into the platform was around the time that Android was born, not now. The initiative has been lost, and it is rapidly becoming an also-ran, against Android and indeed iPhone's undeniably shiny (if facist) OS.
Yeah, so it doesn't help that Nokia's current S60 flagship is basically unusually buggy and slow- those of us who were so impressed by the E series devices got a nasty shock with the N97.. What are Nokia up to?
Anyway, it's a shame, Symbian, especially S60, was a nice platform.. (Ok, so the old EPOC on the Psion Series 3 was pretty badass, too...)
