Nokia announces Series 60 version 3, still no handsets

Jesse D. Lewin

Nokia logoFresh from Finland, Nokia also announced today the third edition of the Series 60 operating system, built on top of Symbian OS 9.  This revision will feature further support for both business and multimedia functionality, as well as improved architecture and customization.  A greater application suite and design for higher resolution displays are also included.  Drivers for DRM'd music playback and USB mass storage will make Series 60 handsets far more friendly towards the up and coming uses customers have in mind for their cellphones (Bluetooth file transfer to and from our PowerBooks sounds fantastic).  Nokia's two software announcements are certainly significant, but we're beginning to wonder what sort of hardware ace they've got up their sleeve.
