Yesterday, a Digitimes report claimed Samsung dropping Symbian from its mobile portfolio and today we’ve got a different word straight from Samsung’s HQ. Samsung says the report is not in line with their smartphone strategy and will continue to build Symbian phones.
Samsung is an initial member of Symbian Foundation and continues to cooperate with Symbian Foundation. At the same time, Samsung supports various existing open operating systems including Symbian, Linux, Android, and Windows Mobile. To provide more choices to meet consumers’ many different tastes and preferences, we will continue our ‘multi-OS’ strategy. Our policy is to provide what consumers want when they need.
