Sorry Symbian, but your time in the sun is over. Nokia confirmed today that they are dropping the venerable OS from their N-series smartphones. Reuters reports that Symbian will be replaced with MeeGo, an operating system built collaboratively by Intel and Nokia.

The Nokia N8 will be the last Symbian smartphone in the N-series. MeeGo is the OS that Nokia is betting the future on. Will it be enough to compete with iOS and Android? Only time will tell, but I've got a feeling Nokia will need to do more than switch up the OS to entice new blood to their brand.
