Nokia Effectively Cancels the 600
Nokia has indicated that it has decided to cancel the Symbian-based 600. The company said in a statement, "After careful consideration we have decided not to ship the Nokia 600 to markets, we are constantly continuing to refine our portfolio to bring consumers the best possible range of devices to meet their diverse needs." The 600, announced in August, was marketed as a Symbian Belle smartphone for music lovers. Nokia is amidst a massive shift in its smartphone business as it transitions from Symbian-based smartphones to Windows Phone 7-based smartphones. Nokia announced its first two Windows Phone devices, the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710, at the end of October.
