The Symbian Foundation has sent an official statement to PhoneNews.com regarding yesterday’s report concerning Nokia’s decision to move the flagship N-Series line from Symbian to MeeGo and the resulting shift for the X, C and E Series.
The C Series of devices will be powered by Symbian instead of the Java-based Series 40 as previously reported. The full statement follows below.
Symbian will be working with Nokia to deliver the operating system for all its upcoming Xseries, Cseries and Eseries smartphones. The move to evolve these series demonstrates the global demand for quality smartphones, but at an affordable price. This appetite for smartphones based on the Symbian platform remains undoubtedly high. In Q1, 260,000 smartphones containing Symbian’s software were sold each day. We look forward to continuing to meet this level of demand, while delivering exceptional quality, to such a broad global audience moving forward. We will also be continuing to provide the maximum level of service to all of the device manufacturers who have chosen Symbian for their vast variety of products.
