Nokia: MeeGo won't displace Symbian as enterprise OS

Summary: Company says Symbian will remain its primary platform for enterprise handsets, even after its top-end MeeGo OS is released.


Nokia has said it will stick with Symbian as its main business-phone platform even when MeeGo, the handset-maker's new top-end operating system, is released.

On Wednesday, Nokia business smartphones chief Illari Numari told ZDNet Asia's sister site, ZDNet UK, that Nokia had "great converged device plans based on the MeeGo platform" and there were "different types of needs and wants in the enterprise market", but the new OS would not be pitched at the enterprise as a replacement for the ageing Symbian.

"It's very important to note that Symbian is the primary platform today and will also be the primary platform in the future," Numari said.
