Nokia has released the Symbian platform source code available to its platform development partners and it is now available online at collab.symbian.nokia.com. The few remaining source files, tools, and documents will be uploaded over the next few weeks.
It seems that Nokia is still having plans for the Symbian platform although it has bonded up with Microsoft to make Windows Phone 7 handsets and make WP7 as its primary mobile operating system. Nokia stated that “While Nokia and Microsoft are working on a definitive agreement between the two companies and we have begun working on product collaboration, Nokia plans to ship at least 150 million Symbian smartphones and to continue deliver innovation and software updates to the platform.”
Nokia also announced it is aiming to support HTML5 for development of Web content and applications for both Symbian and MeeGo platforms.
