Nokia seems to be mighty confused on what OS it really needs to use. So instead of concentrating on one it's spreading it's legs into 2 boats: Symbian and Windows. Not to mention the occasional case of MeeGo or Maemo. Despite the obvious move toward the Windows Phone 7 OS for all their new devices, the successor Nokia’s flagship model, the N8, will still use the Symbian OS.
It is still unclear which version of Symbian will be used as the latest iteration doesn’t have support for the resolution the new device is rumored to sport. Other features of this new phone are as follows:
- bigger camera sensor (not sure about resolution),
- optical zoom!
- 3.5” WVGA Clear Black display with Gorilla Glass,
- 1GHz CPU,
- 512MB of RAM
This has got to be one gadget of a phone, the Optical zoom reminds me of the days of the Nokia N93. The N8 successor is scheduled for Q2 2012 release, and may be launched at Mobile World Congress in February.
