Here's a big change for Nokia. Digitimes reports that Michael Hsu, GM of Nokia Taiwan, has spilled the beans on plans for the further development of the Symbian OS. Apparently Nokia will be skipping version two and moving straight to V3, which will include multitouch functionality. V3 is expected to hit in Q3 of this year, with version four coming out in late 2010 or early 2011.

Symbian V4 sounds like something to get excited about, if you are a developer. It will be based on the Qt cross-platform app development framework, which will allow developers to build apps that support Symbian and Maemo at the same time. 2010 will also see the launch of several new Maemo 6 products in 2H 2010, as well as a price decrease for all smartphones on the Symbian S60 platform. Hsu says prices will be "more competitive".
