Open Source

theweatherelectric noted an article on the H. From the article “Nokia has confirmed that it has closed the source code for the Symbian smartphone operating system. It says that despite it describing its new model for Symbian smartphone operating system development as ‘open and direct’ the ‘open’ part did not refer to ‘open source’ but to being ‘open for business’. The ‘open and direct’ model is designed, according to Nokia, to ‘enable us to continue working with the remaining Japanese OEMs and the relatively small community of platform development collaborators we are already working with.””
