Following up on the news of Nokia canceling the X7 for AT&T last week, it seems that T-Mobile has canceled the successor to its surprisingly popular Nuron in the Nuron 2, which would have been a rebranded Nokia C5-03.
The C5-03 as available in Europe features S60 5th Edition, a 3.2 inch resistive touch display with a resolution of 640 x 360, 5.0 megapixel camera with no flash and video recording at 15 frames per second, Wi-Fi, GPS, a digital compass, quadband GSM/EDGE support and triband 3G, 3.5 mm headphone jack, microUSB port and Bluetooth 2.0.
Training on the device was to have started tomorrow with the launch meant for February 4th before it was canceled within the last week. The cancelation of the Nuron 2 is a strange one as the first Nuron was considered one of the most popular Nokia Symbian smartphones in the US.
The cancelation of the X7 and the increasing irrelevance of Nokia and Symbian in the US market may have influenced the carrier’s decision to cancel the phone so close to launch as Nokia continues to struggle with decreasing market share in the US and other developed countries.
