Nokia Ditching Symbian goes MeeGo for N-Series Phones
Nokia has seen some bad days due to the iPhone and I have always believed that Symbian never get Nokia close to iOS 4 or even Android 2.2. However, now things have changed, we saw the MeeGo Pre Alpha running on a tablet and it looked like an iPad killer. Nokia has now confirmed that they will no longer use Symbian for their flagship N-Series of phones but instead use MeeGo on them.
The upcoming Nokia N8 would be the last N-Series phone to run on Symbian as all the new ones would feature MeeGo. MeeGo is derived from Nokia’s Maemo platform and Intel’s Moblin, the operating system is intended for tablets and smartphones and I think it is going to great.
I believe that we may still see a lot of Symbian, well not on the top notch models but definitely on the much low end under powered devices. This is a great thing and it looks like Nokia has finally decided to take some steps to get in the league with Apple, HTC and Motorola.
