We don't even know a clear roadmap of Symbian^4-based devices. Only a vague 
"devices ship in H1 2010". Will even any manufacturer besides Nokia pick it 
up? Will Nokia outphase Symbian completely by 2013 or so and use MeeGo?

Let's say, only Nokia picks Symbian^4 up, but already plans to outphase it in 
favor of MeeGo by 2013, a Symbian port would not even make sense at all. Or am 
I wrong?
Honestly, I think that porting the SC and Qt to BlackBerry OS would make more 
sense in the long term (not saying that a BlackBerry port should be 
undertaken, just that Symbian's future is uncertain). AFAIK there is no clear 
commitment by Nokia to Symbian for the time after 2011.
