Long Live Symbian

Long Live Symbian

Recently Symbian Foundation announced of transitioning over next six months from operational activities to becoming a licensing body. The board took this not-so-easy decision of leaving the foundation of the company to consider the future. In recent years, a lot of speculations were heard about Symbian. In 2008, Nokia acquired the company and established its foundation, making available the Symbian in open source and royalty free.

With the news of transition of the world’s most widely used smartphone platform, Nokia reaffirmed today its commitment to the platform, saying it will continue investing its own resources in the development of Symbian. Nokia expects a strong portfolio delivery of Symbian based smartphones to the global market.

Senior Vice President of Nokia Smart phones, Jo Harlow, said that the future of Symbian platform does not depend on the foundation, and the transition have no impact on roadmaps of the Symbian device or the shipping commitments of the company. He added further that the Symbian platform powers globally hundreds of millions of smart phones and Nokia expects of delivering ongoing support to the ecosystem of Symbian in future.

On November 9 and 10 at the annual Symbian Exchange and Exposition (SEE) 2010 in Amsterdam, Nokia will be exhibiting its portfolio of the smartphones based on Symbian platform. Harlow will also be delivering keynote address at 10:15 a.m. CET on November 9.

Nokia has a firm believe on Symbian platform because of its ability of serving global audience with its devices that carry locally relevant services and content. Earlier, Nokia announced of not having any intention in changing the plans that was announced on October 21 and the company will keep on developing and evolving the Symbian platform. The company also announced to focus on Qt and Qt Quick for the app development. The Qt for Symbian will keep on working as before on Nokia MeeGo devices in future.

Moreover, anything that is developed for the latest Nokia Symbian smart phones range would work on all the future devices. Importantly, any developments of the platform would benefit the users of Nokia N8, Nokia C6, Nokia C7 and Nokia E7.
