Well well well - maybe Android was too much for Nokia, didn't want to have Google driving their business. Symbian is loosing steam, this is my understanding anyway. Getting something to run on Symbian is not straight forward, and requires hard core programmers. They will have their work cut out in the community. Nokia knows that if they unite every one around they will be stronger. Read/Write web was alluding to Nokia wanting more control "a la" apple owning both the hw and the platform, going the community route is not the easiest way to have control over a platform. On the other hand what can Nokia do, if they don't make it community - Nokia will be the only vendor with symbian phones.
