Nokia to sing Symbian's swan song on April 12th, a handful of smartphones coming up?
Leaks have spilled it earlier about new Symbian handsets, but now it's official – Nokia is to hold what seems to be the biggest Symbian event this year on April 12th, and we expect to see a handful of new announcements or some important news for developers as Symbian sings its swan song. Yes, that's the lullaby that Nokia CEO Stephen Elop said will push the sales of 150 million Symbian handsets before the Finns make a 180 degree turn to Windows Phone as their main platform.
The news about the event comes from the Nokia Nordic Blog for developers, but while further information is scarce we can always theorize on what's about to happen. We might see a couple of new Symbian^3 devices, which have already reportedly arrived at Nokia's Russian headquarters. Don't expect cutting edge models, though – the models' main selling point seems to be their price. We've also seen a couple of models like the Nokia T7-00 leak out. But the vague expression “Discover what's new with Symbian smartphones” might also hint at an updated version of the interface or other software goodies. What's your guess about this event, do you expect any surprises from the Finns?
