The duality drive in the mobile OS market has taken a one more turn as Sony Ericsson is abandoning Symbian entirely. Instead they move with heart and soul to Android. It can be interesting to see how they compare with the other Scandinavian mobile giant Nokia, which insist on staying with Symbian. A post from VentureBeat by Devindra Hardawar tells:
In another stab against the Symbian mobile operating system, Sony Ericsson representative Aldo Liguori confirmed today that the company has no plans to develop future devices running Symbian, Bloomberg reports.
Sony Ericsson currently uses Symbian in its Vivaz line of phones, but the company has been shifting to Google’s Android operating system for some time. The Xperia X10, Sony Ericsson’s latest flagship device, runs Android — and now we know it won’t be the last device to do so.
