      Technically speaking surely 100m Symbian devices have been sold since the Ericsson R380 (not sure I’ve heard of the A830) – of which significantly fewer are still being used in the marketplace. Impressive figures but subtly different meaning!
      It would be interesting to know how many of these are open Symbian vs closed (like DoCoMo’s), a common misconception in the West is that all Symbian == smartphone… but this is a side issue of course…

      According to Nigel Clifford, the symbian president the success of their smartphone operating system lies in the efforts of the phone manufacturers who embraced the symbian OS for their phones.
