Nokia to release more low-priced Symbian^3 handsets soon?

Nokia might be surprisingly planning torelease some new handsets featuring the Symbian^3 operating system,which might not break ground with specs, but rather with their lowprice, according to inside information by Russian tech analyst EldarMurtazin. He claims that the company's Russian head office hasreceived prototypes of the new models, so a launch could follow inthe recent months if we are to judge from this fact alone.

Information is rather scarce, but it'snevertheless interesting to see how Nokia attempts to fulfil its goalof selling nearly 150 million Symbian phones in the transition periodto Windows Phone 7 over the next few years. The Symbian OS was deemeda “burning platform” by none other but Espoo's chief executiveofficer Stephen Elop just a month ago. But could a low price tag buyyou into getting a Nokia handset despite that somewhat dated userinterface? Sound off in the comments below!
