That is like asking if there is anything available to run windows software
under Linux, and asking that question about 10 years ago.

Nokia smartphones run a completely different OS known as Symbian Series
60. In theory someone could start a project similar to Wine that would
provide an API layer to allow Series 60 applications to run under ARM
linux. (Both the Neo 1973, and Nokia phones use ARM CPUs), but in practice
it would be a huge project, so is unlikely to happen any time soon.
