Nokia has killed Symbian, as a direct effect of the Microsoft strategic alliance, when the Finns decided to go Windows Phone. Last summer, Nokia was reported to stop shipping Symbian phones altogether, and the 808 PureView was the last of its (Symbian) breed. Now that Nokia is a part of Microsoft –its devices division anyways– we’re looking forward to what is believed to be the Nokia X2.
There are less than 20 hours (at the time of this post) until the event where the Android-powered Nokia X will get a follow-up. While the general consensus was (and still is), that it will be a phone running Android, pretty much like its predecessor, an new Nokia Conversations post seems to introduce a little anarchy.
“Sometimes we have to go back, to move forward”, says the posting, which leaves us wondering: will the X2 still run Android, or will we see Nokia revive Symbian? While Android doesn’t necessarily mean “going back”, Symbian might, but then again, Symbian is pretty much dead. What do you think?
