Last year, when it announced the strategic alliance between Microsoft and Nokia for the Finnish mobile intelligent desarrollase that worked with the American platform – Windows Phone – is called for calm among users of either version of Symbian : the support was secured until 2016 . Five years in which the company claimed would support its customers in the event that the system suffered problems of any kind. And indeed, once again the commitment initialed. However, and to start developers incorporated nuances.
The data comes from the official developers forum Symbian / Nokia Belle . The issue focuses on a communication by the development team, which make it clear that Symbian has gone to “maintenance mode” , to which they add, “there will be no new features added unless it is for a good reason “ .
Given this, the question that arises is obvious, and indeed, other developers involved d elos forum formulated directly: “Does that mean that Nokia will not release another version of Symbian?” . The development team, however, refers to is not the place to give details about the roadmap in the manufacturer’s strategy as far as launching platforms are concerned, summoning the communication managers.
In this sense, the Nokia press team in our country has been more explicit: “There will be updates to correct errors if any, but there will be no radical changes” . That said, there is one more step on the way to the transition that was already started when the multinational filandesa heeling position looking towards Redmond and its platform Windows Phone . So, when just a year since the release of the first devices Nokia Lumia , passed definitively to the position of hard-nosed stand, limiting to a minimum the appearance of novelties.
As we say, this next step is not pulled from the route already marked Nokia when, in the first half of2011 , professionals and users informed of plans by passing the rearrangement of their joint strategy ofsoftware and hardware . Then he said that the appearance on stage of Windows Phone would not Symbian immediate displacement of its product portfolio .
Within five years would be the guarantee for existing clients of the firm who enroll in this ecosystem, which consists of three families of platforms – S40, S60 and Symbian 3 heirs – and has come to be the undisputed queen of market until Android coup that inflicted in this segment . Nevertheless, and although the company continues to launch Asha family computers, several months ago that do not know a new batch device range for Belle : was in February when we met last, the Nokia 808 PureView , which hit the market last summer.
