No new Symbian and MeeGo apps from January 2014

With the recent announcement of
a Microsoft takeover of Nokia, it
should not come as a surprise that
Nokia will be discontinuing
support for new Symbian and
MeeGo apps from January 1,
2014. Symbian used to be the
world’s number one smartphone
OS by far. MeeGo was the
original planned replacement for
Symbian. Though MeeGo gained
popularity among Symbian fans,
Nokia dropped it for Windows
Phone after the current CEO
arrived.
From what I gather, both Symbian
and MeeGo apps already existing
in Nokia Store will still be
available for download by users.
Also, developers will still continue
to get paid when their existing
apps are purchased. However,
developers will no longer be able
to publish new apps or update
existing apps in the Store after
January 1 2014
