Symbian



Symbian is the world’s most popular smartphone platform. It is implemented in a diverse range of devices and provides application and media developers with a consistent set of technologies. The flexibility of Symbian means it can offer users classic mobile devices, utilising a standard keypad and QVGA screen, through to high-end smartphones that offer nHD touch screens with tactile feedback, full keyboards, and device sensors in innovative flip and slide form factors. Equally at home delivering advanced enterprise applications, games, or music, Symbian gives developers unparalleled opportunities in the mobile space.


To create applications, developers can use Qt, Symbian C++ (using native Symbian OS and Nokia S60 on Symbian OS APIs), a set of open C and C++ APIs, the Java™ language (using MIDP 2.1 with an extensive range of additional JSRs), Web Runtime (WRT) (using standard web technologies), and Adobe Flash Lite. Content developers have comprehensive support for audio, image, and video formats. In addition, Adobe Flash Lite and SVGT can be used for animated content, while the S60 Browser supports standard desktop web technologies. Artists and graphic designers can create themes for S60 devices that can completely alter a device’s look and sound. Symbian enables developers to create high-value applications and content with lucrative revenue opportunities. The platform approach — with uniform implementation of technologies and supporting tools, documentation, and examples — requires less effort by developers to grasp the biggest market opportunity.
