Background on Symbian OS
Symbian is a mobile operating system (OS) and computing platform designed for smart phones and currently maintained by Accenture. The Symbian platform is the successor to Symbian OS and Nokia Series 60.
On February 11, 2011, Nokia announced a partnership with Microsoft which would see it adopt Windows Phone 7 for smart phones, reducing the number of devices running Symbian over the coming two years. As a consequence, the use of the Symbian platform for building mobile applications dropped rapidly. Research in June 2011 indicated that over 39% of mobile developers using Symbian at the time of publication were planning to abandon the platform. The Symbian platform has dropped dramatically in Market share in Europe and North America.
