The Symbian Foundation and Nokia has now officially announced Symbian^3.The new features of Symbian^3 include 2D and 3D graphics architecture, multi-touch gesture support, new homescreen with “support for multiple pages of widgets”, HDMI support, music store integration, and usability enhancements.
Some words by Lee M. Williams, Executive Director of the Symbian Foundation.
S^3 is another huge milestone in the evolution of our platform. Now that it is fully open source, the door is open to individual contributors, device creators and third-party developer companies, as well as other organizations, to create more compelling products and services than ever before. We have enjoyed significant momentum since we completed S^2, with companies including Sun, Nokia, Ixonos, Comarch and Accenture, among others, contributing to S^3. We are now looking to build on this momentum and remain on course to complete S^4 later this year.
