Same here. I don't think it makes sense to work on Symbian support at this 
point. MeeGo as a target platform is much more interesting and strategically 
relevant. Of course there are things that will benefit both, but I think it 
would make most sense to focus on MeeGo at this point, especially since we got 
a number of target devices (the N900s).
