Nokia could launch Symbian 3 smartphone first

The Nokia X10 could be the first smartphone from the Finnish manufacturer to use the Symbian 3 mobile operating system according to documents gathered from within Nokia.

The X10, which shares its name with Sony Ericsson's upcoming Xperia X10 looks to borrow heavily from the design of the Nokia X6 but adds in a full QWERTY keypad and an AMOLED screen.

A video posted on YouTube includes an exploration of what appear to be design blueprints for the X10 and there is nothing in it to suggest that the content is not official.

The smartphone will allegedly have a 3.2 inch capacitive touchscreen display, a five megapixel camera and all of the standard connectivity options including GPS and Wi-Fi.

However, the most exciting piece of leaked information is, of course, the suggestion that the X10 will run the as yet unreleased Symbian 3 OS.

A 600MHz processor will power the phone and according to observers this suggests that the leaked documents are more likely to be legitimate than fake, as it does not pander to fans by hinting at the presence of a more powerful Snapdragon processor or similar.

As yet there is no official word from Nokia on the veracity of the video and the documents it contains, but the video has yet to be removed.
