Mobile recycling customers promised Symbian possibility

Phones such as the Nokia N8 run on Symbian

People who choose to recycle a mobile phone will have the option of replacing their handset with a Nokia model running on the Symbian operating system for the foreseeable future, according to one of the bosses at the Finnish brand.

Jo Harlow, senior vice-president of smartphones at Nokia, used the Conversations blog to state there is no chance the company will switch from the popular platform.

She was commenting after Symbian announced it is to start scaling down its operations and development in order to become purely a licensing body.

But she has assured fans of Nokia mobiles this will not have a negative impact on the range of devices offered by the firm.

"Nokia believes in Symbian because we know that it is the only platform capable of serving our global audience with a range of devices carrying locally relevant content and services," Ms Harlow asserts.

Nokia has recently launched a number of new mobiles, such as the N8, which use Symbian.
