Nokia has been vigorously working towards a really evidently tangible plan . Sure, they’ve been slow to exercise it — as well slow — but it’s impending finishing and ready to bear fruit. The Symbian rewrite is a two juncture plan that will eventually help Nokia in its bid to democratize smarpthones. You can already see how Nokia is shoving what were once high-end smartphone features in to incredibly inexpensive handsets. The initial rewrite will strike gadgets in weeks as Symbian^3 and is a fool around to make existing Symbian users (of that there are millions) feel similar to their OS and services are modern. Symbian^4, due someday in 2011, then takes the user experience to the next level. Remember, we’re still usually conversing about Nokia’s mid-range devices. There’s moreover S40 at the low end.
MeeGo is Nokia’s high-end strategy. The open-source project it began with Intel back in February to reunite their Maemo and Moblin program platforms. The initial handset is still strictly on follow for this year (though that could trip ) and already looks really ample similar to a flagship device if that N9 trickle is valid.
The couple between the two mobile working systems is Qt, Nokia’s program framework. The thought here is that if you write an app for Qt once it’ll work on possibly OS. Nokia’s outlayed a lot of time and allowance to bring the program to the turn it is today. And formed on the feedback we’re conference from developers, Qt is living up to its risky claims.
So, you already know Nokia’s thoughts on Android. The firm has done it in great quantities coherent that it won’t pee in its pants for short-term financial warmth. That brings us to Windows Phone 7. Granted, Elop is forthcoming from Microsoft so it’s innate to pretence his purpose as Nokia CEO could ease the way for even deeper conspiring between the two companies. But consider it, Windows Phone 7 is a total re-write of Microsoft’s mobile phone OS… just similar to MeeGo. There’s surely no value to Nokia ditching MeeGo / Symbian for an unproven mobile working network today, not with Nokia’s immeasurable bottom of existing users. And what value would Nokia have to bring a fourth OS, basically throwng itself in to the cut-throat purpose of a Microsoft OEM when Nokia’s distinction margins are already razor thin? Nokia is inspired for the large luscious margins enjoyed by Apple and RIM, companies that tell apart themselves by owning the hardware, software, and services they sell.
Of course, if MeeGo fails to grasp on (a really actual possibility) and Symbian^4 and S^5 for whatever reason can’t step in to expand the canceled then all bets are off. But until then, and we’re conversing a couple of years out, Nokia isn’t going to reinstate its working systems with Windows Phone 7 or Android, so end it.
