Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Industry sources contacted by The Register confirm Nokia will launch a colour Symbian smartphone on Monday, but reckon that two Swedish sites have not numbered the new device correctly. Rumours of a colour imaging phone codenamed Calypso have circulated in the industry for several months.

Pictures of the 'Nokia 7650' can be found at Swedish Web site Aftonbladet here, and at Mobil, here.

The device is a Symbian phone and has built-in imaging, as we first suggested at El Reg back in June.

Our sources suggest that Calypso, which sports a 208x176 display and a motorised sliding cover, is more likely to be a continuation of the 6000 series than a 7650. Either way, we'll all know for sure before long. Nokia wouldn't elaborate when questioned by Reuters this morning.

Nokia has scheduled a press conference for Monday in Barcelona prior to its Multimedia Developer Conference, which last year was the occasion for the announcement of the 9210 smartphone.

Last month Nokia's 9210 became the best selling PDA in Europe for the preceding quarter.

According to Aftonbladet, Nokia will also launch a mass-market colour phone, the 5210. ®
