according to gsmarena.com
All Symbian fans and users might want to sit
down while reading this. According to the Product
Marketing Manager for Nokia South Europe
Mathias Fiorin, Symbian Carla has been cancelled. Nokialino, an Italian Nokia fan site, claims to have
spoken with Mathias Fiorin, so the infomation
should be pretty accurate. He says Carla is now known as FP1. But it is not
just a name change - both upcoming Feature
Packs won't bring major updates, HD screens and
dual-core CPU support. Basically Belle is the last
major Symbian release the world will get. If all of this is true then Symbian is as good as
dead. There is no better way to put this – there
will be no Carla or Donna. The final update will be
Belle’s upcoming Feature Pack 2 and, as you can
guess, that will hardly be a game changer. We have to wait for an official announcement,
though it does makes sense – as the Symbian
market share diminishes rapidly, Nokia is putting
all its efforts into Windows Phone.

Belle is NOT fine.
Look at Nokia Store, no new games or apps that can be found at Google Play or App Store.

Now to me Symbian phones are as good as normal phones for basic users

Yea, WP7 for Nokia. But I hate the fact that the current Lumia series might not be getting Apollo. Which is kinda sad as they won't get a major upgrade and no custom roms around

damn letme get this straight already.
Carla and Donna news is not confirmed yet, and so does Apollo not going to current Lumia. There is no concrete/official source yet. GSMarena IS NOT official source.
Custom rom for WP7 _tango_ already available, go google.

Carla and Donna news not confirm and not official, but most probably true bro. Also considering that they ditched Symbian to Accenture even makes sense.

Yes Tango custom rom got because Lumia series planned to get Tango anyway, but Apollo don't know la
