Nokia T7-00 spotted in Ovi SDK
A discovery inside Nokia's Ovi Publisher Tools has found what could be the start of a new phone series. The T7-00 would be the first Tseries phone but would start out with the same 360x640 resolution and Symbian^3 roots as other recent Nokia smartphones, like the E7 or N8. Mobilesguruji noted that little else was made public.
The appearance could signal a change in direction for Nokia if the early clues hold. It already has the C, E, N, and X ranges to cover basic, business, high-end and media smartphones. The Tseries would either replace one of these or venture into a new but unknown category.
A possibility exists that the T7-00 is a discarded prototype, but it only just surfaced and is more likely to be an early sign of development. Nokia's switch to Windows Phone has made Symbian a secondary concern, but it still plans to sell devices with Symbian for the foreseeable future.
