Symbian has taken some pretty hard hits as of late, and it’s just been dealt another big one — Sony Ericsson has confirmed earlier talk that it is indeed abandoning the operating system. As Sony Ericsson spokesperson Aldo Liguori bluntly puts it, “we have no plans for the time being to develop any new products to the Symbian Foundation standard or operating system.” That doesn’t completely close the door on Symbian, of course, and Liguori also said that Sony Ericsson still remains a member of the Symbian Foundation. Those future meetings should certainly be interesting, no?
