@Kiran_NSN, Symbian related work is outsourced to Accenture long time back, but Accenture is also planning to give service to Nokia through Avanade. I hope this makes it clear.

@Kiran_NSN It was already known that Accenture was going to be doing Symbian work. This was a the announcement of the finalization of a deal that we had already reported. I felt that the fact that Accenture is being lined up to also do Windows work was the new and news-worthy thing.

The title is little misleading because only the symbian related work is outsourced to Accenture not the Windows OS.

Is it correct to view Accenture in this light? I dont think, it is lazy of Nokia to have passed this on to Accenture. I am sure Accenture will be more foccussed and efficient on handling symbian than Nokia could have been.

What accenture will be getting for supporting a fading out os, over a longer time span? Although Accenture people are saying that they will be strengthened by working with symbian team, but at last Nokia is also traversing towards windows.

I think in the same line. Nokia better focus on its strength rather than developing software. Nokia has already burned its hands enough as far as the smartphone OS goes.

There used to have a plan for open source symbian. Perhaps Nokia will do it once microsoft phones are out in the market.

Symbian foundation was established to promote open source, but due to lack of funding it is all wraps. My guess is Accenture will maintain Symbian going ahead as it had aquired SOSCO (Symbian service arm of Nokia) couple of years back and now Nokia symbian employees.

Why not Nokia makes Simbian open source? This way, many mobile manufacturers, other interested companies and developers in general will get involved and Symbian will have new life with beter features and lower cost.
