Nokia has its hopes on the Windows Phone to compete with iOS and Android on top of it’s Symbian ^3, but it’s rumoured that Nokia is cooking up a new operating system aimed for lower-end handsets instead of using the old Symbian S60 v3. Wall Street Journal tells us the OS is codenamed “Meltemi” and is meant to keep Nokia as the markets’ top seller of low-end phones. These phones account for 47 percent of Nokia’s device-and-services earnings in the second quarter. If this is true, Nokia will be able to compete on the high-end side with Windows Phone and Symbian ^3 and with “Meltemi” on the low-end side.
