Nokia Corporation & Microsoft Corporation: Release Symbian Source Code & Make It Open Source & Release latest update builds & Save the environment
Since Nokia cancelled all firmware updates for their Symbian phones &
Microsoft probably have no intention to keep Symbian OS, because they are concentrating on Windows mobile
I HEREBY DECLARE TO WISH FOR THE RELEASE OF
SYMBIAN OS SOURCE CODES AND LATEST BUILDS TO OPEN SOURCE
FOR DEVELOPMENT & FUNCTIONALITY REASONS FOR MILLIONS OF
SYMBIAN & S40 SERIES USERS ALL OVER THE WORLD
Symbian Os & Nokia's S40 series still cover 20% of mobile os shares worldwide according to "Statcounter - Global Stats"
According to other Global statistic corporations, like Gartner & Canalys the world share of mobile os, depending on the used browser to log on to the web shows that Symbian still has over 20 million users.
A lot of these people have trusted Nokia as their phone provider for over 20 years
these users paid lots of money to receive products that were long known as the best cell phones in the world, and they supported the Nokia Corporation and its Employees for a long, long time.
The biggest competitor in mobile Os already has open source projects and allows development and distribution all over the world
It would be a shame if the users of Symbian & S40 Series would be forced to change their phones, just because of functionality reasons, that some developers might be able to re-program and provide for others
AND, it would be an environmental catastrophe, if over 20 million phones were thrown away in the next 2 – 3 years
SO PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION & KEEP SYMBIAN ALIVE BEFORE IT GETS FORGOTTEN
