Sony Ericsson spokesperson, Aldo Liguori, spoke with Buisnessweek and revealed the handset makers plans — or lack thereof — for Nokia’s Symbian mobile operating system. “We have no plans for the time being to develop any new products to the Symbian Foundation standard or operating system,” said Mr. Liguori . The remarks come on the heels of a statement by SE’s Chief Creation Officer, Rikko Sakaguchi, which explained that the company had made a “significant shift to support Android.” Sony Ericsson did indicate that that they would retain their membership in the Symbian Foundation, despite the absence of the OS from their handset pipeline.
