Symbian OS Declared Free and Open Source :)

by Abhishek on February 4, 2010

Yes, you heard it right symbian os now free and open source for all, it was an propriety platform and was closed source for around 10 years, this is one the biggest news for all those developers out there who were not been able to get symbian for app development. Symbian is one of the most widely operating system in almost large percentage of nokia devices.


Two years ago Nokia acquired the major share of symbian company, then created the Symbian Foundation to distribute the platform as an open source project, and began the process of opening up the source code that year.

Symbian is also on the way of Android as it will also publish its platform roadmap and planned features up to 2011, as said. And anyone can influence that roadmap or contribute to new features as there are going to be lot more new and free apps coming from great mobile app developers who are already working on symbian and those who will start working on it now as it is free and open source ๐Ÿ™‚
