Does this mean that we won't have to hack our symbian with HelloOX for "optimal" use of the phone??
GIGI'S, 04 Feb 2010could you explain in plain word what this means? coz phones like N97 based on symbian OS does'nt come upto the expectation of the customers. problems like system crash and hanging up have been very disturbing. making symbian open source will be helpful in removing these issues
Android will never be number one, because nokia will never use it on their phone
many developer will choose symbian because it has the largest world wide maerket share
knok, 05 Feb 2010a very good initiative .
now people can see more & more phones having this os. symbian is... more"now companies such as samsung , sony ericsson,lg could adopt symbian os and produce cheaper handsets with this as they currently bundling their cheap handsets with an underperforming open source os"
samsung is ditching symbian (and winmo), in favor of their bada OS and android. at any given time, i'd choose an android phone over a symbian-powered one due to the faster development rate of the android.

Wow... how did I know that someone was going to ask this type of question... Seriously, think about it.
Correct me if i am wrong
nokia seems to be the mobile company that not to keep their big plans secret
like symbian 3. 4
new maemo6 phone
Joe, 05 Feb 2010Can i upgrade my Samsung star phone to symbian OS ?not possible.
This news are amazing!
now you can integrate the system in many devices like pcs, netbooks which are then powered by this nice os
of course with the requirement to modify the code and apis
maemo 6 and symbian 4 will have high potencial to be the leaders the next years when nokia will change the ui and hardware improvements
also the ovi store developed very fast and everyone can observe the increased download rates
qt will be a very good solution to get higher capabilties and more developers to create apps
now we should expect that many feature based functions we will find in the future like
you cannot upgrade and won't be let to upgrade any symbian^1 to symbian^3 or something, because of: hardware requirements, software/driver incompatibilities, commercial/marketing reasons. Buy, buy, buy. EOF.
I dont think u can upgrade to Symbian^3 from Symbian^1. These versions are not for end users like us. These are for the phone manufacturers to develop the hardware that can run it.All we ppl can do is to expect refinement in the firmware from the manufacturers like nokia, samsung and sony(all these have Symbian^1 devices)
We need Symbian emulators to play apps on WinMo!! Open up to world to cross platform apps...
is installing a symbian OS in a phone that doesn't have any OS at all possible?
1. Android is also fully open-source. You can download the whole kit, make whatever changes you want, compile it and deploy it on whatever device you want.
2. Symbian^3 is the same thing. There might be some initial hype from different groups trying to do something with it, but it'll probably fizzle out.
I'm willing to bet that Google is a lot more active at enhancing the core of Android than the Symbian Foundation who've taken two years to update and re-release S60.
btw windows 7 is mobile version of windows 7 which is successor of windows 6.5.3 and coming in 2011
a very good initiative .
now people can see more & more phones having this os. symbian is a very powerful os designed especially for mobile phones .windows 7 & android could not also match its performance as they require more cpu,ram and they are inefficient for mobile phones.
now companies such as samsung , sony ericsson,lg could adopt symbian os and produce cheaper handsets with this as they currently bundling their cheap handsets with an underperforming open source os .
Parvin, 05 Feb 2010Could someone please clarify or confirm if a device using Symbian^1 can be upgraded to Symbian^3 ???http://tinyurl.com/yh44d9p
