When will Nokia stop making Symbian phones?

I find it almost sad when I see new Symbian phones. When will Nokia stop?

They will definitely continue to release new Symbians into 2012. It'd be beyond foolish to dump Symbian BEFORE they know if WP7 is a viable alternative. Even Elop can't be that stupid/devious.
The latest announced Belle devices have 1GHz chips. Nokia confirmed "gHZ+" devices, which implies more powerful devices are still to come. Surely, Belle will get a sort of flagship...

It was beyond foolish for Elop to scrap the Nokia recovery plan, Meego, QT cross platform development etc... And then to torpedo your own product line with the "Burning Platform memo" a full year before the alternative (WM7) product was ready only to find they were jumping from a burning platform to a sinking ship.
Symbian Belle may well be around for a while, while Nokia waits for Meltemi or similar that will run on modest hardware.
Also depends on if Symbian Phones can continue to outsell WM7
