Symbian Foundation to Take Source Code Offline on Dec 17

PCWorld is reporting today that the Symbian Foundation will be taking the Symbian mobile operating system off line on December 17th. After that, the only way to get a copy of the software will be to pay to have a physical media version shipped. Full details of that process will be detailed on the Symbian website found here.

The transition will be performed over the next few weeks to the new system. That process will include closing down the Symbian foundation website along with the developer, blog and ideas sites.

Nokia is still working out the details of how it will make the source code of future Symbian versions available, a spokeswoman said. But the company will work one-to-one with anyone that want to use the operating system on its products.

Expect to hear more in the coming weeks about how things will move forwards.
