Nokia N8

Nokia may be placing much of its focus on its Windows Phone devices like the Lumia 710 and 900 as of late, but some new rumors have surfaced to suggest that the Finnish firm is cooking up a handset that could make the Symbian crowd pretty happy. According a "trusted source" of BGR's, a new device known as the Nokia 803 is in the pipeline, and it may just be Nokia's final Symbian device. Not much is known about the 803, but BGR's tipster claims that it'll feature a 4-inch AMOLED display, Nokia Belle, HDMI-out, a microSIM, NFC and "one of the largest camera sensors" of any phone we've ever seen. The 803 is purportedly expected to arrive in May.

This isn't the first time that the name "Nokia 803" has cropped up, as the folks at Pocketnow got hold of a user manual for a Symbian Belle-powered handset referred to as the Nokia 803 back in December. The manual didn't offer up much in the way of specs, revealing only that the phone has NFC, HDMI and DLNA support, but it did contain the image you see below, which shows a basic rendering of a handset with a pretty big camera hump. Symbian fans may not be thrilled about Nokia's decision to ditch the platform for Windows Phone, but if these 803 leaks hold true, Nokia may be giving those folks a nice treat before they're done. More on the Nokia 803 as we get it.

Nikitas Fooskas
Nikitas Fooskas I don't understand this. Nokia plans to dump Symbian but then they have new phones out like the 700, 701 and this 803 with Belle (which is way better from what I seen). Can some diehard Nokia users explain this to me? Are they in or out? Should I upgrade my 5800 Navigation Ediition to the 701 or wait for this 803? Comments welcome.
