Nokia working on its first Maemo 6 device

Nokia has reported it is working on a new device that will give us a first look at the latest incarnation, version 6, of operating system Maemo. In addition, the manufacturer is also working on a new user interface for its other principle operating system, Symbian.

 

The new Maemo 6 device is described by Nokia as a 'mobile computer' and will reportedly appear on the market during the second half of 2010. As previously reported, Nokia is due to release just one Maemo device next year, so we presume this is it. This implies that the current N900 will be the first and last device to feature Maemo version 5.

 

Meanwhile, Nokia CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo said of the new Symbian user interface: 'In 2010, we will drive user experience improvements, and the progress we make will take the Symbian user interface to a new level.' However, no further details on the UI were available.

 

In related news, Nokia declared it will also be concentrating on both touch-screen and QWERTY-based mobile phones next year.
