Posted on 20-Nov-2003 21:49 | Filed under: News

Symbian released the following unaudited financial and operational figures for the third quarter ended 30th September 2003:


Q3 2003 Highlights
  • 1.23 million phones shipped by four Symbian OS licensees to network operators in Japan and throughout
    GSM / GPRS territories worldwide (Q3 2002: 0.79 million units)
  • Third consecutive quarter in which more than 1 million Symbian OS-based phones have shipped
  • 3.91m Symbian OS phones shipped worldwide in the year to date (Jan – Sept 2002: 1.02m)
  • Operator Technology Integration agreement signed with Japan’s NTT DoCoMo
  • Three new products based on Symbian OS began shipping in Q3 2003 (Q3 2002: 0 products), Nokia
    3600 and two 3G products - Motorola A920, NTT DoCoMo’s F2102V made by Fujitsu
  • At the end of Q3 2003, 31 phones and variants based on Symbian OS were under development by 9
    licensees (Q3 2002, 16 phones and variants & 8 licensees)

    Symbian receives a royalty on each phone based on Symbian OS shipped by licensees. From Symbian OS v7.0 onwards, the royalty has been set at US$7.25 per unit for the first 2 million units shipped by a licensee and US$5 per unit thereafter.

    Symbian also receives additional royalty revenue for devices shipping with the UIQ user interface supplied by Symbian’s subsidiary, UIQ Technology AB.

    David Levin, Chief Executive Officer, Symbian Ltd said: “Symbian has continued to make good progress in Q3 2003. This is the third consecutive quarter in which Symbian OS licensees have shipped more than 1 million phones based on Symbian OS to network operators worldwide. Almost 4 million Symbian OS-based phones have shipped in the year to date. At the
    end of Q3 2003, 10 phones from 4 Symbian OS licensees were shipping worldwide. Symbian has established a strong position in 3G with the launch of two further 3G phones based on Symbian OS. Motorola’s A920 is now shipping in a range of markets across Europe and the F2102V built by Fujitsu is the second Symbian OS phone shipping on NTT DoCoMo’s FOMA network in Japan. In September Symbian signed an Operator Technology Integration with NTT DoCoMo. The agreement
    with NTT DoCoMo represents a great opportunity for handset manufacturers to take best advantage of Symbian OS and to exploit the full potential of FOMA. NTT DoCoMo’s development of an integrated package of technologies for Symbian OS phones will enhance further the appeal of Symbian OS as a development platform for handset vendors worldwide.

    For the fourth consecutive quarter, the number of Symbian OS phones and phone variants under development has grown. At the end of Q3 2003, 31 phones and variants were under development by 9 Symbian OS licensees (end of Q3 2002: 16 phones and variants by 8 Symbian OS licensees). Symbian OS licensees have announced a number of products for launch in the next three months. As anticipated at the half year, Symbian’s full year performance will be significantly determined by licensee shipments made in the current quarter.”
