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.

  1. I have a bit of a dilemma . I would like to get myself a good cell and cannot decide on which one to select. To begin with, i thought of the Nokia 5610Nokia 6500, which my friend has. It looks quite tough, and it all seemed good, but i started looking at others. Now my largest problem is to choose between the Nokia X3 and the Samsung i8910 Omnia HD 8GB. All suggestions are welcome

  2. While I love a physical keyboard, after dealing with the Samsung Captivate for roughly quarter-hour, it’s arduous to go back. Presently I am debating whether or not to go to Verizon for the Droid X, go to Dash for the EVO, or stay with AT&T for the Captivate…choices, decisions.
