/// Nokia’s Dying Symbian OS Still Rules the Smartphone World
How ironic is this? Symbian, the mobile operating system that Nokia is slowly abandoning as it refocuses its smartphone strategy around Microsoft Windows Phone, is the leading mobile OS worldwide. December StatCounter metrics, compiled by Pingdom , show Symbian with a 33.59 percent share of the global smartphone market. That’s more than Apple’s iOS, which claimed a 22.56 percent share that same month. And it’s more than Android, as well: Google’s juggernaut mobile OS accounted for just 21.74 percent in December. Remarkable.
