As Nokia has gradually converted to the Windows Phone platform, the Symbian and MeeGo operating systems have begun to fade from public consciousness. In what might be the death knell for both, Nokia has been emailing developers to alert them that it will no longer support Symbian or MeeGo after 2013 ends, according to Maemo.org. Anyone with a Symbian or MeeGo phone will still be able to download applications, but no new apps or updates to apps will be made available starting next year. “We are very excited about the opportunities available with Asha and Windows Phone, and hope that you will bring your talents to these platforms,” said the Nokia Developer Team. “We believe that these changes will help improve our ability to support you as you develop fantastic apps for your customers.”
