Today, during AT&T Developer Summit at the Nokia Technical session in Las Vegas, Nokia announced two things. Number 1: Nokia extended the deadline for the $10M Calling All Innovators contest to March 31, 2011. Number 2: A new Qt enabled Symbian smartphone is coming to AT&T in Q1. They didn’t name or show this device, but my gut feeling says it will be the Nokia X7 that was leaked a couple of times already.
Nokia told the audience at the session that they had overwhelming response from Qt trainings in North America. A lot of people just got started and asked for more time. I totally understand since $10 million in cash, devices, and marketing prizes are up for grabs.
We’ve seen leaked photos of the Nokia X7 earlier this month. It had AT&T branding, Symbian OS, four speakers, 8 megapixel camera, and dual LEDs flash. There’s no official announcement yet, but CES isn’t over.
