Nokia phone browser
Nokia is developing a mobile browser for its Series 60 smartphone software with optimized mobile Web browsing," said Pertti Korhonen, Nokia's chief technology officer. "Open source software is an ideal basis for development since it enables Nokia to leverage and contribute to speedy software innovation and development...Both Apple and Nokia share a commitment to Internet standards and the use of common code."
"The Safari WebKit's blazing performance, efficient code base and support for open standards make it an ideal open source technology for projects like Nokia's new Series 60 browser," said an excited Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.
Nokia also announced the launch of seven new phone models on Monday: its 6280 3G slide phone with a 2-megapixel camera, the 6270 quadband slide phone, the 6111 camera slide phone, the 6060 GSM clamshell model, and three CDMA models -- the high-end 6265 2-megapixel camera slide phone, and the 2255 clamshell handset and the 2125 candy bar-shaped entry-level models.
