Vodafone and Nokia Working to Increase Use of S60
Posted on 13-Feb-2006 22:24 | Tags Filed under: News



Nokia and Vodafone are collaborating to strengthen the S60 software platform's role in Vodafone's device portfolio. According to the companies, this collaboration will help Vodafone to offer new services more quickly to its customers by increasing the use of S60 as a standard software platform for mobile handsets worldwide.

"Standardisation of handset software platforms across mobile phone manufacturers offers significant opportunities for Vodafone. We will be able to reduce time to market for new products and services and help customers take up new services more quickly. The fact that Nokia is developing the S60 platform in close co-operation with us further enhances our ability to offer innovative and consistent new services in a competitive and efficient way," said Dirk Wierzbitzki, Deputy Director of Terminals, Vodafone Group.

Vodafone will work with the S60 community, to be able to enhance user interfaces (UI) of mobile devices.

Nokia and Vodafone will develop a Vodafone-specific software complement on top of the S60 platform. The collaboration also includes the expansion of the licensee base and increased portfolio penetration through open roadmap governance and establishes a strong independent brand position for both the S60 software and the supporting developer activities.

In addition, Nokia and Vodafone are working jointly to promote independently licensable reference designs from semiconductor vendors to enable shorter time to market for new S60 devices.
