Nokia launches Python for Series 60-based mobile devices
Posted on 1-Feb-2005 08:30 | Tags Filed under: News



Nokia has announced the launch of Python for the Series 60 Platform, allowing the worldwide open-source developer community that utilizes the powerful Python programming language to execute Python commands and run Python scripts and applications on Series 60-based devices.

Python is an object-oriented programming language that is developed and maintained by a global community of open source developers under the oversight of the Python Software Foundation. Python is relatively easy to learn for programmers of other languages such as C, C++, Java, and Visual Basic, and can therefore assist programmer productivity. It is often characterized as an agile language that promotes speedy development and includes a unit-testing framework for building more robust applications.

Available for free download via the website of Nokia's global developer community, Python for Series 60 is a software package that installs to a Series 60 platform-based device, enabling developers to create applications with the simple and consistent, object-oriented Python programming language. It can be used to develop commands, scripts and applications for Series 60-based devices.

The official press information states that Python for Series 60 is well-suited to the development of prototype and proof-of-concept applications for Series 60-based mobile devices. Developers can execute Python commands using an interactive console in a Series 60-based device, accessible via the keypad or a remote connection to a PC over Bluetooth.

Using Python for Series 60, developers can write Python applications and install them to a Series 60-based device and the device can then run these applications from the Python environment. Python applications can also be developed to run as standalone applications with the selection of an icon from the device menu. Using Python for Series 60, developers also can execute Python commands and scripts in the emulators of Series 60 Developer Platform SDK's.

Python for Series 60 packages available for download include Python installer (SIS), with example scripts, release notes, additional libraries and documentation in PDF format, including "Getting Started with Python," "Programming with Python," and "API Reference for Python." Additionally, a Python for Series 60 discussion board on the Nokia site assists developers in navigating development scripts and applications on Series 60-based devices.
