Nokia Says Symbian Smartphones in Product Pipeline Through 2012. Windows Phone Only After That?

Harry Fairhead discussed the email that Nokia VP Purnima Kochikar sent to developers and concluded what many of us have believed since the Nokia/Microsoft announcement: Nokia’s support of Symbian in their phones will fade away over some indeterminate period of time.

Nokia confirms that Symbian phones will just fade away

Harry notes that Purnima Kochikar said that there are Symbian based products in the pipeline for 2011 and 2012. This is the same time period that Nokia plans to roll out its Windows Phone devices. Will Symbian based phone completely exit from Nokia’s product line after the Windows Phone smartphones become available? That certainly seems to be the case.
