Nokia exec denies Symbian Maemo swap claim

Doesn't quite address original allegation

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

A Nokia executive has pooh-pooh'd claims that the Finnish phone giant is dropping support for Symbian in favour of its Maemo mobile incarnation of Linux.

“Nokia is not replacing Symbian with Maemo," Peter Schneider, Head of Marketing for Maemo Devices at Nokia, Twittered yesterday. "Symbian and Maemo will continue to co-exist."

It’s worth noting, however, that the original report never claimed Nokia was planning to replace Symbian with Maemo across the board, just that it may do so with its smartphone devices.

Since Schneider's comment addresses an across-the-board operating system switch rather than the smartphone-only change, both claim and counterclaim are not mutually exclusive. ®
