Symbian Website Closure Confirmed
The Foundation stated that it would make most of the content available through other media. For example, the documentation and source code could be requested from Symbian on USB hard drives or DVD.
The closure of the sites is apparently the first stage of the process, whereby Nokia will completely take over the Symbian operating system. However the Symbian Foundation has said it will still control licensing of the platform.
In other news, it seems the HTC HD7 (pictured) phone has the same antenna problems that beset the Apple iPhone 4. This was relayed to the internet via a video.
From the video, experts have realised that the HD7 responds in a similar way as the iPhone, generally referred to as the ‘death grip’ and is a result of placing the antenna at the bottom of the handset.
The death grip is a reference to owners holding the smartphone at the bottom resulting in loss of signal.
Finally, Apple has banned the Android magazine application from its applications store. However the company hasn’t said why.
Analysts are perplexed why the Android Magasinet has been withdrawn from Apple’s site as they can’t see how it contravenes any of Apple’s rules.
