1:16 /

In a CNET Conversation, Nokia's EVP discusses the future of the two operating systems.

-So, tell me, what are your plans for Symbian? To keep it on some devices and then have MeeGo be-- -So, Symbian is about democratizing smartphones so you think about, there's lower and lower price points for smartphones, Symbian will be treatment to that one and then we introduce the MeeGo from the high end. -Uh huh. Okay, so they will co-exist side by side-- -They will go side, absolutely. -Okay, I see, and when there's a lot of user interest in MeeGo, do you have any sense of when we might start to see some MeeGo powered devices? -So, we are working on the MeeGo, it's work in progress and I think at this point of time, it's more likely, let's bring it up when it is ready for the prime time. Currently, we have our suite set in Nokia world, all the excitement is now around the Symbian with the new N8, C7, E8, and with those devices and we have a lot of good momentum there with 70 companies doing more than one million downloads each, I think the increasing momentum around all this store so that's why the focus is at the moment on Symbian and making sure that the new version takes off well.
