Buy a Symbian^3 now and get Symbian^4 features later
It will be possible to buy a Symbian^3 now and get Symbian^4 features later, see Nokia Conversations. Nokia Focuses on Qt to Extend Reach for Developers, Make Mobile Experience Richer for private and business Users.

Today, Nokia is making moves to streamline its development environments across device platforms, focusing squarely on Qt. Although Nokia has long been a Qt advocate, today, the company is making Qt its sole application development framework – meaning, that if a developer creates their application in Qt, they'll be able to easily deploy it to Nokia devices on Symbian and MeeGo platforms. Nokia is taking this approach seriously, making the commitment to create its own applications and UI on Qt as well.

For Nokia smartphone users out there, this is great news as the move will lead to a more compelling and engaging experience, with more apps available for your device. Even more importantly, you can buy a Nokia smartphone confident that any improvements introduced later to the Symbian platform, such as the user interface, can be made available to download on your device as well. No need to wait for Symbian^4 — the improvements we were planning for Symbian^4 will be introduced as and when they become available. In fact, we will no longer be talking about Symbian^3 or Symbian^4 at all – it will be one constantly evolving and constantly improving platform.

The app starts in learn mode where it records your habits frequency and severity. When you are ready to quit you exit learn mode and begin quit mode. At this point the app tailors a quit schedule based on the data it has collected during learn mode.

Samsung terminates its support for Symbian?
Following recent announcement from Sony Ericsson that they have no plans to support Symbian^3 (which may mean no support for *just* Symbian ^3, i.e. the company waiting for Symbian^4, or no future support for Symbian at all - it's not clear), today Samsung announced termination of Symbian support service from Dec 31st, 2010. An email about it has been sent to all registered developers and an announcement has been posted on the Samsung Mobile Innovator site.

It looks that Nokia is REALLY on its own now...
