Nokia Corporation & Microsoft Corporation: Release Symbian Source Code & Make It Open
Since Nokia cancelled all firmware updates for their Symbian phones &
Microsoft probably has no intention to keep Symbian OS, because they are concentrating on Windows Phones,
I HEREBY WOULD LIKE THE RELEASE OF SYMBIAN OS SOURCE CODES AND LATEST BUILDS TO OPEN SOURCE
FOR DEVELOPMENT FOR MILLIONS OF SYMBIAN USERS ALL OVER THE WORLD
Symbian OS still provides the base for many tens of millions of users worldwide (e.g. numbers from "Statcounter - Global Stats"). A lot of these people have trusted Nokia as their phone provider for over 20 years. Android, Symbian's biggest competitor in mobile OS, already has open source projects and allows development and distribution all over the world, and I would like to see Symbian opened up on a similar basis, for ongoing work by professional and hobbyist programmers.
SO PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION & KEEP SYMBIAN ALIVE BEFORE IT GETS FORGOTTEN
They already dumped it once. Go here. You need to be more specific and request that they grant you access to the latest versions of that mobile OS - which ain't gonna happen.
