Every regular here on Mobility knows that the user known as EyeBeeKay was the last man standing on the Symbian platform. His die-hard posturing and obsession with Symbian has earned him the spotlight again and again on this blog.
He has held on tenaciously to his aging Symbian S60 5th Edition Nokia 5800 and sworn a couple of times to go to the grave clutching it. Okay, I made up that last part, but you do get that feeling reading EyeBeeKay’s comments in defence of his 5800.
As such, it came as a shock when earlier today, EyeBeeKay posted a comment using an Android device. A little bird whispered to me that the device in question is a Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro. Of course, I will not stake my life on that information.
God forbid that EyeBeeKay actually used an Android device – and one with a QWERTY keyboard too. Still, here’s the link to EyeBeeKay’s Android comment.
But just in case this really happened, is this the beginning of the end? Is Symbian losing its last man standing?
