The news broke when a user of Nokia's 'Drive' app for the Nokia E7 reported a bug in its FP2 update, only to receive a statement from the company confirming the platform will no longer be developed.
"Thank you for your improvement ideas, thus (sic) Symbian is in maintenance mode and no new features will be implement[ed] without extremely good reason," said Nokia.
"We have written down your ideas for future development if there is a chance that new features will be released."
Nokia has been winding down the once-dominant Symbian for some time, having adopted the Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8 operating systems for its current and future handsets.
Symbian was the world's leading mobile operating system until it was eclipsed by Google's Android in November last year.
