Nokia works on a TD-SCDMA Symbian smartphone

Nokia said today that it’s currently working to develop a TD-SCDMA smartphone based on the Symbian S60 OS.

The smartphone is, obviously, especially built for China, since the TD-SCDMA technology is being used only there, in the world’s largest mobile market (about 600 million users, according to the latest reports).

Details on the upcoming handset are scarce – we don’t even know its name. However, due to the fact that it runs on Symbian S60, the device will surely be at least a mid-end one.

Here’s a mock-up of the smartphone, based on the old N77:

Nokia said that the TD-SCDMA handset will be launched no later than the end of 2009. Its price was not announced, but that’s logical, since the handset is not yet fully built.

Now we can only wait and see what exactly Nokia has in mind for the Chinese TD-SCDMA users.
