Life is starting to look grim for Nokia and their Symbian OS after Samsung joined Sony Ericsson in dropping the platform. The move will add further pressure on the Symbian developer community who are being pressured to develop for the Apple, Android and the new WebOS platform which is set to be relaunched shortly by Hewlett Packard.

Life is starting to look grim for Nokia and their Symbian OS after Samsung joined Sony Ericsson in dropping the platform. The move will add further pressure on the Symbian developer community who are being pressured to develop for the Apple, Android and the new WebOS platform which is set to be relaunched shortly by Hewlett Packard. 
 Samsung told developers on Friday that it was dropping support for Symbian and that development  forum’s and reference content will be pulled down from Samsung web sites on December 31. Samsung will also stop certifying Symbian applications.
The Korean Company who is currently developing their own Bada OS said that they have “no more interest” in Symbian.
The Company is currently developing new Android and Windows Phone 7 Smartphones as well as new hardware that will run on their Bada platform.
The dumping of Symbian by two major brands leaves Symbian virtually stranded in the mobile industry say analysts.
Sony Ericsson has already dropped the platform leaving only Nokia as a significant customer for the platform. 
Analysts claim that several of Symbian’s one-time loyal partners had already scaled back plans for the platform. Android so far has been the only major, cross-manufacturer mobile OS to challenge the closed but integrated Apple and RIM platforms.
