Nokia delays shipment of first Symbian^3 smartphone

22 Apr

Nokia today announced that the first device running the vendor’s latest version of the Symbian OS will be delayed. The first Symbian^3 based smartphone was earlier expected to be announced in March and released in the second quarter. However, now it will be announced in the second quarter and shipped in the following quarter. “We will not ship the first Symbian^3 device before it is completely ready,” Nokia CEO, Olli Pekka Kallasvuo said during a conference call with analysts after the company declared their first quarter results for the year.

Nokia will also launch its first product based on MeeGo, the result of merging its Maemo platform with Intel’s Moblin, by the end of this year. In the meanwhile, Kallasvuo indicated that its ‘Comes With Music’ service will be launched in India soon.

We are also expecting to see Nokia’s first dual-SIM phone to be introduced in India within the next six months.
