Symbian will not go quietly into the night


With much of the public attention drifting toward WebOS, Android, iPhone and Blackberry, it seems the market leader Symbian and the recently formed Symbian Foundation will not be resting on it’s laurels, offered up it’s plan for five simultaneous builds of it’s OS.  This will allow agile support for in-demand features yet ensure active builds released in the wild are stable and secure.  With such an aggressive plan, one has to wonder how much of this announcement relates to leading the market with innovation or trying to divert the growing attention to the impending launch of Palm Pre, Windows Mobile 6.5 or iPhone 3.0.  This is turning into a great Texas Hold’em poker game.  Heck Palm just went ‘all in‘.
