Recycling old mobile may allow long-term investment in Nokia

A Nokia expert has dismissed fears Symbian could be a passing craze and insisted it is here for the long term - meaning some people may wish to sell an old mobile and invest in it.

Ian, writing the Nokia Conversations blog, says starting with the upcoming Nokia N8, the firm aims to sell upwards of 50 million Symbian devices over the next few years.

The author was relaying the words of the company's chief executive officer Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo and chief financial officer Timo Ihamuotila, who this week spoke to industry analysts.

He adds there will be many benefits of the arrival of Symbian, including a uniform feel to phones across the brand's portfolio.

This should ensure it is easier for developers to create apps that work on all models and make it simple for users to enjoy them.

Some consumers may wish to cash in on their used phone ahead of the N8's release, in order to be in a position to splash out on it.

Nokia says the N8 will have a 12-megapixel camera and the latest video recording technology.
