Nokia is going to stop selling Symbian and S40 phones in North America when they launch their first Windows Phone devices. Chris Weber, Nokia USA President told AllThingsD the company will also focus exclusively on sales through traditional wireless carriers. That practically means subsidized high-end Nokia devices!
Hopes of the Nokia N9 coming to the United States were crushed earlier today when Nokia released a sad statement. Don’t worry, though. We’ll have eBay to buy from sellers overseas. Full statement after the jump.
Uh oh! The countdown timer at the Nokia N9 Sweden website just disappeared. It was counting down to September 23rd. What could this mean? I hope it’s not getting delayed… or cancelled.
Nokia just licensed an audio technology that will enable them to deliver CD-quality stereo audio wirelessly over Bluetooth (BT) connections. BT is already used to stream stereo audio wirelessly from handsets and other audio devices to headphones and speakers, but it is bandwidth-constrained. Expect to see a range of accessories using this technology in the 4th quarter.
Reliable sources told us last month that Nokia was considering to change the naming convention to just numbers. They were right. Nokia announced the new system today on the Conversations blog. It goes like this: first number is the relative price/feature point while the next two numbers give each device a unique identifier within that point.
September. That’s when the next iPhone is rumored to come out. It’s also when industry sources claim HTC, Samsung and LG will launch the first Mango-based Windows smartphones. Nokia CEO Stephen Elop wants to release the first Nokia Windows Phone this year. Long-time Nokia fans probably assume December 31st, 2011 because Nokia has been really slow to act lately.
Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has been telling everyone that the first Nokia device with Windows Phone is targeted for fourth quarter of 2011. The Holidays 2011 would be a key goal, he said in the D9 interview. This morning, the @Nokia account tweeted something that got us worried. They said shipment starts early next year! We reached out to Nokia for clarification. Read on, for the current official word on the release date.
We now have a solid release date for the Nokia N9 in Sweden. A press release from 3 announced the MeeGo device will be available for sale September 23rd this year. When the Nokia N9 was announced on Tuesday, CEO Stephen Elop said availability and local pricing will be announced closer to the sales start.
We’re still excited about the Nokia N9 announcement, but another MeeGo device was launched silently today. To aid the speedy development of apps for the Nokia N9 smartphone, Nokia has produced a limited number of developer phones, the Nokia N950. The N950 isn’t available for purchase and can only be obtained through selected developer programs.
As expected, the Nokia N9 was officially announced today at Nokia Connection in Singapore. The MeeGo device features a 3.9-inch AMOLED Gorilla Glass screen, 8MP Carl Zeiss wide-angle camera with dual LED flash, 16GB or 64GB storage, and more. Photos and video after the jump.
