Symbian Foundation boss quits

Latest blow for Nokia's smartphone OS

CEO's decision follows string of resignations at Nokia.

And the resignations just keep on coming. Having seen Nokia’s CEO, smartphone lead and MeeGo boss all walk out, now CEO of the Symbian Foundation, Lee Williams, has decided it’s his turn.

In an official statement, the Symbian Foundation said, ““The Symbian Foundation is today announcing that Lee M. Williams has stepped down from his position as Executive Director for personal reasons. We thank Lee for his work over the past two years and wish him all the best in his future ventures.”

The Foundation’s CFO, Tim Holbrow, has stepped up into the vacant position. However, rumours are already flying that the Symbian Foundation, created to promote the now-ailing mobile OS, is set to be wound up.

This would certainly make sense as both Samsung and Sony Ericsson have both ditched the operating system in recent weeks, leaving Nokia as its only key proponent. Is this the final nail in the Symbian coffin? Let us know what you think on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
