Nokia to give away unseen Symbian slider phone?
Nokia may unveil a QWERTY Symbian phone at its Nokia World show that kicks off tomorrow, as indicated by some photos posted by Engadget. They reveal Nokia reps unpacking a truck outside of the venue, with images and text on the boxes showing what is believed to be a Symbian-powered, vertical slider. The tagline on the boxes reads "You. Me. Everyone. Let's QWERTY," though the model number is covered up with tape.
Other text proves the device will have Wi-Fi and 3G radios as well as social functions. It will be available in red and gray as well. The source believes the handset is the Nokia 303, a rebranded S40 6th Edition phone, and may be given away in gift bags at the event.
Official confirmation is expected to come on Wednesday morning.
