Well, we can't sugar-coat this one -- when a major Nokia / Symbian site like Symbian-Guru
decides to close up shop "thanks to Nokia's consistently piss-poor hardware choices and Symbian's lack of ability to even remotely compete in terms of features," there's not much else to say. It sounds like shutting things down was at once both incredibly easy and incredibly hard for site heads Ricky Cadden and Rita El Khoury, who've both penned long letters about their decision -- you can tell both of them remain incredibly passionate about Nokia and Symbian, but that they've been disappointed by mediocre handsets like the N97
one time too many. Better hope Nokia can take that MeeGo for handsets pre-alpha
we saw yesterday and whip it into something good, we suppose. You should really hit the source link and read the entire post on Symbian-Guru
, but we've collected some choice quotes after the break.
