In an interesting twist, we now know that the first Symbian^3 phone to hit the market would come from an Asian manufacturer instead of Nokia, although there was no mention on just who it is. Apparently, Lee Williams, Executive Director of the Symbian Foundation, claims that the Symbian^3 code is “nearly ready”, where he espouses a “very mature” Symbian^4 to be more or less ready before the first quarter of 2011 is over. While we also know that the Nokia N8 should be out by Q3, the fact that this juicy bit of news was revealed would probably point towards a late August date for this mystery device. There is a bunch of Asian manufacturers that we can speculate with, including Samsung, Sharp, Fujitsu, Compal, Huawei, Foxconn, ZTE and Coolpad.
