The famous Finnish tech. giant Nokia had previously announced that in October, they will be ending all developer support for their flop platform MeeGo and recently, they have announced that they’re saying goodbye to Symbian as well.

Well, the deadline has just passed and the Nokia Ovi Store will not accept any more applications. Nokia Inc. has announced the end of the golden era of Symbian and MeeGo platform via their official Symbian Team account on the micro blogging site Twitter.

"That was it; we are officially closed. Thank you all for the past years!"

—Symbian Signed Team 

In case you have unfortunately missed this news, the recently dropped MeeGo/Symbian platform support and the app publishing means that developers will no longer be capable of pushing their new applications or updates in the existing Ovi Store. They will still continue to receive their revenue from their apps, of course, and all the currently available applications in the Ovi Store will remain available for users to download.

So, if you still are interested in them, the Ovi Store is open and your device is not rendered worthless just yet. But maybe, it is about high time you should jump ship.
