The Symbian Countdown: 108 hours to go…

The Twittersphere is buzzing with news about the Symbian Countdown.

‘What is that?’ I hear you ask.

Well, nobody quite knows.

The Symbian Twitter account simply announced this about an hour ago:

#symbiancountdown 108

We are thus led to assume that in 108 hours (presumably!) there will be an announcement.

There’s a heck of a lot of speculation being discussed across the social networks as to what precisely the announcement might be. I particularly liked GerryMoth’s tweet including a mobypicture speculating that in 108 hours, Jack Bauer is back…

Here’s the photo he knocked up:


I don’t think Symbian have done a deal with Jack Bauer, although I could imagine that Bauer himself would demand the reliability of a Symbian-based handset.

We shall see. 108 hours is approximately 4.5 days. Which puts an announcement on Saturday afternoon.

We are assuming that the countdown is leading *to* something — an announcement, a launch, a deal…

It could well be 108 days. Which, er.. is about 3.6 months away. Or it could be 108 minutes.

We shall see.

    Surely it's 108 DAYS until the release of the new version (is it Symbian ^3)?

    In the new 24 series Jack discovers a plot to kill all iphone users with a backdoor trojan placed on every device, he then has to use a Nokia E72 device which is “safe” to decode the trojan and save the day.

    Episode 3 is really good where he uses SymTorrent to download the antivirus patch and then forwards to all iphone users using pixelpipe.

    Brilliant stuff
