Nokia Prepping a Feature Phone With 1 GHz Processor

While a 1 GHz certainly looks good, the rest of the specifications might take you by surprise. This “smartphone”, apparently, will be running on Symbian S40! This is a bit surprising and will prompt you to wonder why Nokia is actually manufacturing a feature phone with a fast processor that won’t even be running the latest Symbian OS.

Really? A smart dumbphone?!?

Not only will it have a 1 GHz processor, the handset will also have 512 MB of RAM. Plus it’s going to sport a ClearBlack capacitive touchscreen display. Also, the handset will be Wi-Fi and 3G enabled and will also have a QWERTY keyboard. All this was revealed on Twitter through none other than the Finland-based company’s Manager of Marketing in Argentina.

Quite possibly, the device might be shown off at the Nokia Connection 2011 event that will be held in Singapore. We definitely want to know more about this handset and it will be interesting to know how Nokia will price this handset that has a processor faster than that of the Nokia N8.

Do you think it’s a little weird that all the processing power will go to waste with an outdated OS? Or maybe if the handset is priced aggressively, this mysterious device might just be apt for the VFM category. Tell us more in the comments section below.
