Symbian Carla/Donna Canceled?

It seems perhaps that Symbian is truly at the end of the line…According to this quote from Mattia Fiorin, Product Marketing Manager at Nokia:

One can say that Symbian FP1 and Symbian Carla or this latest update will be released in the coming months?

Carla is no longer a name we use. FP1 is pretty much that was once called Carla.

This means that Carla has been released already as FP1 and if Symbian Donna comes it will not be a major release like Belle was it will just be a Symbian Belle with FP2 dumped on top if it.

One could also conclude from this announcement that the  Nokia 808 Pure View will be Symbian’s last gasp, if you want a Symbian phone my advice buy an 808 and BABY IT.

What a sad and bittersweet day to see Symbian truly being sent out pasture.

  1. This is a sad day. If Nokia files for bankruptcy it will totally be their fault. You are releasing the 808 soon, but before it even hits shelves, reports are surfacing about no Carla or Donna or any other, but just Feature Pack 2. I think they are too quick to drive the nail into Symbian’s coffin. Why not wait until after the 808 sales figures start coming in, if it’s dismal, then you make that decision.

    Now what do you think will happen now that people know there will be no more updates coming. You think the 808 will see groundbreaking numbers. And what if it does, and it outsells all Lumias to date, do you change your mind, and bring Carla and Donna and more. Nokia is digging their own grave here, or is Elop so much in Microsoft’s pocket that he’s willing to bring down the once mighty Nokia without second thought
