When I read about a new upcoming Cseries by Nokia yesterday (speculated to run Nokia’s new Maemo Smartphones by IntoMobile’s Stefan), I thought, if they were going to introduce a new line up – Xseries would sound better. Cseries – sounds like it belongs to the low end range? Cheap series? Mass market series? I don’t know. Today however, Stefan’s found out that Nokia may also be bringing Xseries.
According to Gizmodo, Xseries line up is for the XpressMusic phones (or will at least include them) – music orientated handsets from Nokia focused on mostly mid-range/mass market. That isn’t what I had hoped, which was a new line up to take over the successful but now saturated Nseries range as the prestigious high end Nokia devices.
Is it going to be pronounced “X” series or xeries/zeres :p. What about the similarly named X-series from Sony Ericsson?
Nothing is set in stone - as Stefan points out, Nokia only trademarked the Xseries name, as well as several Eseries devices and more interestingly, another product brand: “Booklet” which Stefan speculates could be for Nokia’s netbook.
Whatever happens, I hope Nokia aren’t too quick in bombarding their new lineup with ever more less memorable designations. I may as well be talking about the periodic table when discussing Nokia devices.
