Symbian shutting web sites down

When I first joined this beat Symbian was the dominant mobile platform. Now the foundation that took the platform open source is shutting its virtual doors.

When I first joined this beat in 2005 Symbian was the dominant mobile platform.

Now the foundation that took the platform open source is shutting its virtual doors.

The lights go out on the Symbian Foundation December 17, the group announced yesterday. The formal announcement was buried on a Friday holiday weekend, although to be fair Nokia is based in Finland.

The decision was made because Symbian is becoming a mere licensing body, thus it doesn't need the sites. The Twitter feed and Facebook page will also be going bye-bye.

The code itself will be available on a DVD or stick drive upon request after January 31.
