Per a message that I saw a day or two ago on Waze's Twitter page, they have not ruled out doing bugfixes. But it likely depends on the severity of the bug.

Unfortunately Symbian is a 'dead' platform. Nokia has abandoned it. Within 1.5 - 2 year most of the users with Symbian SmartPhone will have moved onto other platforms. As it looks now, those are likely iOS and Android. It is not yet clear if Windows Phone 7 is going to get any traction in the market.

Windows Mobile has been dead even longer. The user base on Windows Mobile has been dropping for months.

It really does not make sense for Waze to invest development resources in these dead platforms. There is already a working client for those platforms which Waze has stated that you can continue to use and that it will continue to work.

Nokia is killing it not third party application developers. Nokia announced that they are stopping development on Symbian.

Too bad Nokia believed in Microsoft and Windows Phone 7 vs adopting Android instead. It's likely too late for Nokia to fix as their company degrades. Sad.

Hi guys,

I am frustrated by the news of Symbian version of Waze won't be update anymore. There are a lot of users that use iOS and Android OS but Symbian is the major OS on smartphones in numbers of sellers. iOS version of waze was rewrited, why don't do the same with Symbian? Why don't use the Qt plataform to rewrite the code (witch can be use on Windows Phone, Meego and others plataforms)? I like too much waze instead several bugs, but with this situation, a think many users will abandon the program. I hope they change their mind about platforms like Symbian, Windows Phone and others.

This is an outburst of a user. Sorry for my bad English.
