Nokia has announced that it will be looking to feature a number of updates within the Symbian operating system. “About time too!” cries a host of Nokia fans who, more than anyone, see the Nokia-dominated OS falling by the wayside as competing operating systems sail past it in terms of usability and technology.
Up to five new upgrades will occur during next year with the first quarter being the first guide post. At that time, expect to see an upgrade featuring around 50 improvements. For example, a new web browser is on the cards along with a more user friendly user interface. During the year the company has stated that is will provide, "...a new look and feel for the user interface, a more flexible home screen, an updateable HTML5 browser and an easier software update experience."
Other improvements will occur in and around its hardware (as we wait for the release of the E7 and X7) with support for 1GHz CPUs and dual-core smartphones to make an appearance too with a 'true zoom' camera phone.
Expect a release date around 2011 or early 2012.
