New features for next generation of Nokia Series 60
Posted on 15-Jun-2004 19:48 | Filed under: News



Nokia introduced two new Feature Packs for the Series 60 Platform that will provide future smart phones with rich features and functionalities for operators, enterprises and consumers. The feature set of Series 60 will include multiradio support with GSM/GPRS/EDGE, WCDMA and CDMA, phone displays with higher resolutions and enhanced enterprise support, in addition to the exhaustive number of other features.

Series 60 Second Edition is the first smart phone platform that will include both CDMA configurations as well as dual-mode WCDMA-GSM. Dual-mode WCDMA-GSM will offer full support for operators' 3G services and pave the way for video telephony and advanced streaming & browsing capabilities on mobile devices.

The new Series 60, built on the Symbian OS, brings high display resolutions of 208x208, 240x320 QVGA and 352x416 in both portrait and landscape orientations. The UI framework will include the support for Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) that will enable third party developers to design layout aware applications that can intuitively adjust to the different resolutions.

On top of the existing features, Series 60 Second Edition will have a rich enterprise environment with IMAP-IDLE support for push email, improved data synchronization and full-featured corporate intranet browsing with HTML and JavaScript support. Secure corporate connectivity will be enabled via IPSec and VPN. All this with multiple display resolutions, a QWERTY input method and data connectivity options will give enterprises a broader selection of Series 60 based smart phones.
