Symbian platform may still be supported by Nokia for a few more years, but developers seem to lose their interest in creating apps for this particular operating system.
Google, the search giant, has recently announced it will discontinue Symbian Search app due to the fact that it hasn’t been updated in a long time and the company feels it needs to focus its efforts on its mobile web search experience. Moreover, it appears that Symbian Search doesn’t even work on the latest version of Nokia Belle with FP1, which was to be expected given the fact that the application is obsolete.
Those who want to use Google Search within their Symbian smartphones are recommended to go to www.google.com and make it homepage or bookmark it. Unfortunately, we expect more Symbian to be discontinued in the future, so stay tuned for more updates on the matter. via UnleashThePhones
