Nokia is introducing the new edition of the Series 60 Platform, based on the Symbian OS v9.0. The Series 60 Platform 3rd Edition will enable Series 60 handset manufacturers to create smartphones for various user segments, device formats and target high volume consumer markets. The Series 60 3rd Edition will be available for licensees in mid-2005.

The Series 60 3rd Edition will also include the features and functions of the previous editions, including multiradio, extensive application suite, scalable UI and high-resolution support.

A new security framework offers protection for business critical data and provides a more secure and trusted application development and business environment. The Series 60 3rd Edition also includes significant improvements in many business features, such as calendar, synchronization and device management.

For multimedia capabilities, the Series 60 3rd Edition will offer a new music player, more functionality for rich media content, USB mass memory storage and high-quality multimedia rendering.

The platform also offers new features for developers, such as location, Web Services and Session Initiated Protocol (SIP) support.
