More Smartphones that Work for Business

New smartphones that are suitable for business use.

Nokia announced plans to release four or five upgrades to its Symbian operating system over the next 12 to 15 months. The upgrades are expected to include an overhaul of the user interface, a more flexible home screen, an updateable HTML5 browser and an easier software update experience, according to Computerworld.


Nokia is also looking to revamp its hardware, IntoMobile reports. During Q2 or Q3 of next year, the Finnish mobile giant will release handsets with 1GHz processors and more graphics memory. Nokia will introduce devices with dual core processors and real optical zoom in either Q4 2011 or Q1 2012.


Symbian has seen its market share drop, largely due to competition from Google's Android. Nokia, which is taking over the direction of Symbian, must make changes if the platform is to remain relevant in the market.
