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:
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.
