An S60-less Nokia Eseries in the works?

Chris Ziegler

We don't see how Nokia's business-savvy Eseries line could thrive without the benefit of a tested and true smartphone operating system to back it up, but if this picture is the real deal, that may very well be where we're headed. Just Another Mobile Phone Blog posted this picture of a rather plain looking candybar complete with Nokia branding and an "EXX" stamp in the upper right, typical for a preproduction device before Espoo's decided what model number to bestow upon it, sporting nary a single S60-specific key on its pad. Frankly, the phone looks cheap -- like knockoff cheap -- so we're holding out hope that this is some underground manufacturing outfit's idea of a bad joke, not a sign that S60 is leaving the Eseries behind.
