So long, Symbian. Tucked away in the company’s financial announcement this morning, Nokia confirmed that its pixel-punching 808 PureView phone will be the last release powered by the Symbian OS. In no uncertain terms:
The Nokia 808 PureView, a device which showcases our imaging capabilities and which came to market in mid-2012, was the last Symbian device from Nokia.
The company still managed to sell a total of 2.2 million Symbian devices during the last quarter, half the number of Windows Phone 8 devices shifted in the same period — presumably thanks, in some way, to that as-yet unparalleled PureView camera sensor.
