Nokia are determined to get themselves back to the head – or thereabouts – in the smartphone race, but it’s safe to say that some of the steps they’ve taken to achieve this have been a bit of a gamble.
One such step is their rumoured decision to release a new PureView phone, this time running on the relatively obscure MeeGo operating system. While it’s Linux-based and certainly there’s more potential room for it in the market than the fading Symbian (we’re looking at you, 808 PureView) OS, it seems ambitious for the struggling Finnish phone maker to be pushing it onto the market at this time.
This mystery handset that Nokia will apparently be releasing will feature a dual-core 2GHz processor, a 1024×768 Super AMOLED display with CBD, and an 18MP snapper with Carl Zeiss optics and PureView technology. It’s also (if not more) intriguing to hear that this phone could also be coming out on the Windows Phone 8 platform.
These are just rumours for the time being, but the idea of a MeeGo Nokia phone isn’t so ridiculous now that Jolla Mobile have resurrected the operating system, and are promising to deliver phones running on it by the end of the year.
