Written By Sam on 27 June 2010

Followed by the officially reaffirmation of Nokia, the world’s top-notch handset manufacturer, popular for its N-series about the N8 being the last N-series handset with Symbian, tech world is now buzzing with rumors of Nokia planning to port all its future N-series with a new platform called MeeGo.

Nokia N8 running on Symbian is a Symbian^3 powered handset with a 12 megapixel camera and complete multimedia powerhouse with an HDMI port. Though running on the latest OS than its predecessor, this phone has been outshined by more contemporary OSes like Android and the iOS 4. Now, the things are expected to change, Nokia’s N-series will implement a new OS – MeeGo changing the traditional synonymous N-series and Symbian Operating System. MeeGo is being developed by Intel in collaboration with chip giant Intel and is expected hit the mainstream devices by the end of 2010.

MeeGo does not mean the end of Symbian, Nokia’s other handsets of X, E and C series will continue to run on Symbian OS and we might even see the concurrent version of Symbian^3 – the Symbian^4 by early 2011 along with the launch of the Nokia’s first MeeGo N-series handset.
