Nokia might be surprisingly planning to release some new handsets featuring the Symbian^3 operating system, which might not break ground with specs, but rather with their low price, according to inside information by Russian tech analyst Eldar Murtazin. He claims that the company's Russian head office has received prototypes of the new models, so a launch could follow in the recent months if we are to judge from this fact alone.
Information is rather scarce, but it's nevertheless interesting to see how Nokia attempts to fulfil its goal of selling nearly 150 million Symbian phones in the transition period to Windows Phone 7 over the next few years. The Symbian OS was deemed a “burning platform” by none other but Espoo's chief executive officer Stephen Elop just a month ago. But could a low price tag buy you into getting a Nokia handset despite that somewhat dated user interface? Sound off in the comments below!
