Nokia is allegedly working on two low-end MeeGo smartphones to help it with its "Next Billion" strategy, a revelation delivered by an industry insider working in a department of the company related directly to the upcoming products.


The "Next Billion" strategy basically boils down to Nokia retaining a leading role in delivering low-end cheap phones for the next one billion mobile subscribers, most of which will be in poor developing countries.

After Nokia LUMIA, The next billion project is mostly served by the Series 40/Asha department, but it seems that Android phones have managed to go down in price enough to threaten the Nokia positions in the low-end. The smartphone department where Windows Phone rules supreme cannot come down to the ultra low-end where feature phones lived for a number of reasons like WP not being supported on devices having less than 256MB of RAM.
