Nokia's plans for the Symbian 3 and MeeGo mobile operating systems are becoming clearer after reports surfaced suggesting that it is launching new phones based on these platforms later in 2010.
The Symbian 3-based N8 smartphone was officially unveiled a couple of weeks ago and Nokia has now allegedly committed to producing its first mobile to be based on the MeeGo platform in time for a winter launch.
Rumours of its plans circulated after Nokia launched the N900 smartphone in Taiwan, many months after the Maemo-based powerhouse made its UK debut.
The reports so far have been vague, with no detail as to the types of mobiles that may be on their way, but Nokia is likely to release further information in due course.
Symbian 3 has been given plenty of attention, but little is known about the intricacies of MeeGo. There are some who believe that Nokia will be dedicating this platform to a device that can compete with the Apple iPad, but there is also no reason that Nokia could not install this software on a smartphone or two.
