Nokia officials 'reveal' Nseries future and Symbian-Maemo transition

Nokia has (allegedly) officially spoken up (albeit at a Maemo-only event) about its plans for Maemo to take over new Nseries models by 2012, reports Ben Smith over at TRMP. According to the Nokia representatives at the event, although further Nseries Symbian-powered smartphones will appear in the meantime, it seems that after 2012, Symbian OS will power the new Xseries and Eseries smartphones and Maemo 5 will power the eye-candy-heavy Nseries top end. Of course, IF that is to happen, there's an awful lot of work needed by the Maemo team - watch for our analysis here both on All About Symbian and All About Maemo. Updated: Nokia official statement on the report below.

The Features That Time Forgot...

In the early development phase of AAM, we did a number of articles to test the site which have now fallen off the news page but which can still be accessed through our features section.

Three Apps on my Smartphone, and I'm still rolling along...

Are bulging App Stores overrated? Whichever Symbian-powered phone you own (or even if you have an iPhone, Blackberry, etc), could you manage with only three third party (i.e. add-on) applications? And if so, which ones would they be? Steve Litchfield conducts a spot survey and ponders a few personal theories...

Wait a second, what's going on? What the heck is Maemo?

Some of you may be familiar with the Maemo platform from the Nokia N810, N800 or 770 internet tablets, but most N900 smartphone users are probably going to be encountering Maemo for the first time. If you're new to the Maemo project you might be rather confused by what's going on. What is Maemo anyway and what's happening to Symbian?
