The facts are, that until Elop destroyd the brand just 12 months ago, Nokia branded smartphones were easily selling more than all iPhones and all Samsung smartphones added together - and growing at about the same rate, while growing profits too. The real paying customers in China, rest of Asia, Africa, Latin America, and to a lesser extent, in Europe and Oceania - were snapping up those Nokia smartphones quite happily. And today, that most award-winning 808 PureView superphone, it also runs on Symbian, on tech so advanced you cannot build the same phone on an Android or Windows Phone OS. Symbian is not dead (yet).

Can Symbian run on multicore-CPU-platforms, does it have a thread-safe code? I think not, neither does WP. Both are unusable for high end phones.

Because Elop and MS, Nokia is forbidden to bring quad-core Meego-device with the Pureview-camera. What a great decision from Elop and the general board, good job!
Nokia deserves to die and get the next Darwin award.

ah. Tomi Ahonen. If you want a constant stream of Nokia bashing he's your man to follow. He does have a few valid points but he really needs to find himself a girl or something to get some other things into his life. Putting that much time and energy to bashing nokia doesn't seem very healthy.

edit: didn't read that post. I've read enough of his stuff.

I'm not sure. The kernel is enabled, but in 2010 talk was about Symbian^5 and ^6 bringing muti-core support.

Yes and yes - the development work was done jointly by Sony Ericsson and ARM and it was announced on the Symbian Foundation blog around three years ago. A proof of concept Sony Ericsson U8500 with an ARM Cortex-A9 processor was also built and demonstrated.

At the time there was no other smartphone OS with multicore support.
