> In fact they defined the category in the first plache!
None of the people I know who had a Symbian phone put it in the smartphone category.
Why does everyone think the iPhone was the very first smartphone? Because only the user interface matters and makes the phone look "smart" or not.
If Symbian had been good enough to create an actual "smartphone" product (in the usual, "user-interface" meaning of the term), then Nokia would not have spent years trying to a create a (couple of) brand new alternative(s). And they would probably not be where they are today.
