Symbian ^3

GLOBAL – Every week we bring you a veritable feast of videos here on Nokia Conversations, from behind the scenes footage to interviews with the top bods at Nokia. Here’s our weekly digest of what’s been caught on camera over the past seven days.

This week captured a first look at Symbian^3, as David Rivas takes us through the OS’ latest features. We took a trip with Nokia Point and Find to discover a solar panel in the roof, whilst the fellas from Mobile Industry Review and All About Symbian had a word with Tero Ojanpera on Nokia’s Ovi strategy. They also directed a camera at Christof Hellmis for a chat about navigation and his views of the future.

Sit back, make yourself a cup of tea and enjoy this week in videos.
