The once most popular/advanced mobile operating systems MeeGo and Symbian from Nokia are officially dead as of today. Nokia had made an announcement back in October 2013 that it will be officially ending all developer support for MeeGo and Symbian on January 1, 2014 and they have now announced the same via the official Symbian Team account on Twitter.
Now what this actually means is that the developers will be no longer be able to add new apps or update the already present ones in the Ovi Store. If you are a developer you do not need to worry as you will continue to receive revenue from your apps. Also all currently available apps in the Ovi Store will still be available for download so all you Symbian/MeeGo user’s out there may make it through after all and your Device is still not worthless
The Symbian & MeeGo were the major players along with Blackberry OS in the times when iOS and Android were still emerging but over the years there has been a constant change in the market share and Android currently holds more than 70% of the Smartphones globally. Well it surely is the end of an era and we hope Nokia finds some peace with there future developments. Will you miss Symbian ? Do you feel abandoned by Nokia ?
