Intel working with Nokia and Symbian to bring 3G to Symbian platform
Intel Corporation, Nokia Corporation and Symbian Ltd. are working together to bring smartphones based on the Nokia Series 60 Platform to market using Intel technology as part of Intel's recent membership in the Nokia Series 60 Product Creation Community. Also, Intel and Symbian have agreed to invest in the joint development of a reference platform to enable a new class of 3G devices based on Symbian OS and Intel XScale Technology.

The Series 60 Platform, built on Symbian OS, is one of the world's leading smartphone platforms. It is licensed by manufacturers like Lenovo, LG Electronics, Nokia, Panasonic, Samsung, Sendo and Siemens.

As part of its new role as a member of the Series 60 Product Creation Community, Intel plans to complement the Series 60 Platform by providing some high performance and low power processing to enable mobile browsing, multimedia messaging and content downloading, as well as a host of personal information management and telephony applications.

Also, Intel and Symbian are investing in the co-development of a reference platform. The development agreement focuses on building the first 3G reference platform that utilizes Intel's and Symbian's expertise in smartphone technology. The reference platform will enable mobile phone manufacturers to create differentiated handsets while significantly reducing development time.

"The next generation of handsets for 3G networks will require a platform approach that couples low power and high performance with robust application development," said Sam Arditi, general manager of Intel's Cellular and Handheld Group. "Intel's wireless platforms combine leading-edge hardware with Intel's decades of experience in creating application ecosystems for data networks. Working with Nokia and Symbian to help bring Series 60-based devices to market means that developers and phone manufacturers will have new compelling tools to deliver on the promise of 3G."
