Remember when Nokia wasn’t synonymous with Microsoft? Nah, me neither. That was ages ago now.
A leaked YouTube video shows what might’ve been for Symbian and MeeGo, had Nokia chosen not to abandon the “burning platform” in favour of Microsoft's, er, rescue boat.
The two-minute video details Nokia Air, essentially a cloud-based system that promises – or promised – to store all your junk up in the virtual sky.
Even apps would be stored by Nokia Air. Rather than downloading a game and repeatedly installing updates, Nokia Air would stream the most recent version direct to your phone.
Interestingly, the Nokia Air video also shows off a couple of new devices, in the form of an unnamed “slim and stylish” tablet (with Tablet S-style weighting at the top), and a smaller device with a flexible display – referred to only as the “mini”.
Judging by the news and Twitter content, the Nokia Air video appears to have been put together around mid-2011. Of course, Team Elop is all about Windows Phone now, so there’s little to no chance of seeing Nokia Air become a reality.
