This is unfortunate, but certainly no surprise. I suspect that Canon, Pentax, and Konica-Minolta will make similar announcements in the not-so-distant future.
With the VAST majority of their SLR sales being digital SLRs, there's just no point in continuing to sell film SLRs if only 10% of the SLR market is going to buy them.
Specifically in regards to the Nikon announcement, it's very sad that of the two film SLRs they will continue to sell in the immediate future -- the F6 and the FM10 -- the FM10 isn't even made by Nikon; I believe it's made by Cosina or Tokina or some similar company. It has a Nikon lens mount and a Nikon emblem, but that's it. But I guess it's popular with photography students who require a fully-manual SLR for class and don't want to buy a pre-owned Nikon (which I'd personally much rather have than an FM10).
