Symbian stays and Maemo is for something else

Wednesday, December 02, 2009
It looks like the Maemo marketing team at the Nokia N900 London meetup, last Wednesday, got a little excited and said something they shouldn’t have. As they revealed that Nokia plans to drop Symbian from the Nseries line of devices in favour of Maemo by 2012.

The very next day, the guys from the Nokia blog contacted some Nokia representatives and stated that the words of the Maemo marketing team are “premature”. And here is the official response from Nokia’s corporate communications:

“While it is our policy not to disclose details of our product roadmap, we’d like to explicitly communicate that we remain firmly committed to Symbian as our smartphone platform of choice. Any speculation on what our 2012 roadmap, including operating systems and product branding, are completely premature”

As we have stated earlier, Nokia has multiple platforms to serve different purposes and address different markets. Symbian is more successful than ever in bringing smartphones to the masses. Maemo is our software of choice for devices based on technology that you’d typically find inside a desktop computer. It delivers a different user experience and enables us to widen the market we can address.
