Exactly one year ago, Nokia and Qualcomm announced that they would work together to develop and launch Symbian smartphones for the North American market, mentioning “mid 2010” as target for the release of their first device.
Now, during MWC 2010, Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs has provided more details. According to Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat, Nokia and Qualcomm will introduce a Symbian smartphone based on a Snapdragon processor this year.
Qualcomm’s CEO said that this particular Symbian smartphone with Snapdragon is destined for North America (AT&T maybe?), so it’s unclear whether or not other markets (i.e. Europe, Asia) will get any Nokia-Snapdragon devices this year.
We’ll bring more details as soon as new valuable info comes to light.
