Yes, support still seems pretty good. If you had to rank platfrom support for the the major apps (The order they seem to get rolled out)
2 Android
3 Symbian
4 Blackbury
5 Windows Mobile
6 Bada

Plenty of new stuff in the Nokia Store and elsewhere daily.
Anything in particular you're interested in?

And PS: in 'paid apps' Nokia's market actually beats Android's Market :p So, developers still have an incentive. Jan Ole Suhr can charge €10 for Gravity. It's easily one of the 2 or 3 best Twitter/fb/etc apps on any platform.

Jan, Treab, please, I implore you to quit arguing about Droid vs Symbian. Can you just agree to disagree?

OP, in answer to your question, yes, the Symbian app store is still very active :).

it means the paid apps are selling better in Nokia's Store. Both Nokia Store and RIM AppWorld make more 'non-ad' profit. It means, as per my example' that there are very popular, profitable paid-for apps, such as Gravity. We all know that, ad-support aside, not many devs make money through paid-for Android apps.
