Symbian, the mobile operating system made by Nokia has been the world leader for smartphones. For years. But things (finally) changed in Q4 2010. Android is in. Symbian is out.

Canalys, mobile phone market analyst has published a report saying that in the fourth quarter of 2010, 32.9 million smartphones running Android were shipped, compared to the slightly trailing 31 million Symbian devices.

Clearly, Symbian is no longer the world leader in the mobile phone OS market. Now I am sure my next phone is an Android.
