Is it the end for Symbian… and for Garmin-Asus, too?

Two rumoured reports of closures: the Symbian Foundation and the Garmin-Asus partnership.

The resignation of Symbian's Lee Williams, followed by Nokia's new focus on Qt, has led to rumours that new executive director Tim Holbrow – previously Chief Finance Officer – will be winding down the foundation within the next six months.

And Asustek is expected to walk away from its Garmin-Asus handset business when the partnership with navigation company Garmin expires in January 2011, with the manufacturer returning to the production of Asus-branded handsets.
