Nokia axes plans for the 600
Nokia has abruptly decided to cancel all plans for the unreleased Symbian Belle powered 600 saying that they have decided not to ship it to markets after careful consideration.

The Nokia 600 appeared to be a mid-range offering set to launch as an alternative to the Finnish manufacturers upcoming Windows Phone devices. The 600 features a 3.2-inch capacitive display and is powered by a single-core 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Around the back of the smartphone is a 5 megapixel camera that can record video in 720p HD. However, now that it has been cancelled even before it’s never seen the light of day that camera will never be put to use.  

In a statement issued by Nokia in regards to the cancellation of the 600 this is what they had to say:

The axing of the Nokia 600 comes only a week after they pulled the covers off of the Lumia 710 and Lumia 800 Windows Phone handsets. Nokia wasn’t clear if the overall response of the two new devices led to the 600’s unfortunate demise. Nokia appears ready to go all in with Windows Phone and might even make Symbian a thing of the past. Tell us what you think.
