Symbian Foundation to unite several Symbian platforms

by Volker Weber

London, UK - Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola and NTT DOCOMO announced today their intent to unite Symbian OS(TM), S60, UIQ and MOAP(S) to create one open mobile software platform. Together with AT&T, LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics, STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments and Vodafone they plan to establish the Symbian Foundation to extend the appeal of this unified software platform. ... To enable the Foundation, Nokia today announced plans to acquire the remaining shares of Symbian Limited that Nokia does not already own and then contribute the Symbian and S60 software to the Foundation.

A common enemy unites. Depending on your world view that is either Android or Apple.

I think that's good news. UIQ vs S60 has always annoyed me... Perhaps Nokia can get a touch screen smartphone a tad easier now.
