Nokia smartphones running Maemo 6 could hit the market before the end of the year, a senior figure at the Finnish mobile phone has disclosed.
Although the N900 and its Maemo 5 operating system have only been with us a short while, Michael Hsu, general manager of Nokia Taiwan, told DigiTimes that the company is already mulling plans to bring phones packing the next edition of the software to market in late 2010.
Mr Hsu also revealed that Nokia expects that Maemo 6 smartphones will make up around ten per cent of its sales in 2011.
One significant addition planned in Maemo 6 will be multi-touch support, allowing Nokia to produce a follow up to the N900 that has a capacitive screen.
All eyes will now be on the Nokia World 2010 conference taking place later in 2010, when more news and developments relating to Maemo 6 and all things Nokia is expected to be announced.
Whether a Maemo 6-based phone will be on display at the event is yet to be seen, but it's unlikely that Nokia will stay tight-lipped for long.
