Nokia N8 is the first released smartphone to run Symbian^3, but strongly resembles earlier versions of the operating system. The main reason is the fact that Nokia didn't have the time and, probably the spare resources, to start a new OS from the scratch. Basically, Nokia engineers worked on the Symbian^1 platform adding new features and enhancements, making it faster and more eye-candy.
