During our transition to Windows Phone through 2012, we continued to ship devices based on Symbian. The Nokia 808 PureView, a device which showcases our imaging capabilities and which came to market in mid- 2012, was the last Symbian device from Nokia.
Now the core focus of Nokia is towards Lumia Windows Smartphones while its also working on Asha Series 40 (S40) phones. The company now terms S40 Java phones as their fast 1Ghz smartphones for emerging markets, while for established markets its core focus is Lumia Windows Phone. N8 Fan Club’s team isn’t happy at all to deliver this news. Most recent and popular Windows Phone from Nokia to date is Nokia Lumia 920. Nokia is also planning to come up with “something very cool” in next PureView technology.
What do you guys think? Nokia should have continued with multiple platforms like other companies are currently doing? Lumia Windows Phones primary, Symbian + S40 + MeeGo should have at-least secondary priority? Example of Samsung is already infront of us, where they are continuing with multiple platforms including Android, Bada, Windows Phone and upcoming Tizen (MeeGo – recently ditched by Nokia). Which Nokia Devices are you looking forward to buy in future? Will you purchase Nokia 808 PureView just right now as the last Symbian masterpiece from Nokia?
