shockingly unsurprising announcement, Sony Ericsson told the world + dog that it would no longer develop Symbian phones.
“We have no plans for the time being to develop any new products to the Symbian Foundation standard or operating system,” a company spokesman told Bloomberg.
The company will obviously focus on Android in the future, although we wouldn’t bet against Windows Phone 7, either. Sony Ericsson has had several successful Windows based handsets in the past and it’s still sticking to the OS on a couple of high end phones.
As for Symbian, Sony Ericsson never really managed to outdo Nokia. It appears that the Vivaz series will be the end of the line for Symbian in SE’s offer.
