Symbian 9.5 announced
Symbian Ltd. has announced the launch of Symbian OS v9.5, the latest evolution of one of the world’s best selling operating system for smartphones.

The new Symbian OS v9.5 brings high performance features designed for richer consumer and enterprise experiences as well as significant savings to phone build costs and time-to-market, delivering a truly scalable mobile operating system for the global market.

The company says over 110 million Symbian smartphones were shipped to date. The new operating system is backward compatible with all versions of the v9 family, and includes some key enhancements.

Symbian OS v9.5 delivers performance improvements with reductions in requirements on memory, processor and battery, enabling smartphones based on Symbian OS v9.5 to run on feature phone hardware. Key memory optimization features including demand paging and automatic RAM de-fragmentation can reduce average RAM usage in excess of 25 per cent, allowing for more concurrent applications for an even better user experience or enabling licensees to include less memory and reduce phone build cost.

These features deliver some benefits in the areas of performance and power usage, including faster device start-up time, faster start-up time of popular applications such as browser, email and navigation by up to 75%, and improvements on the battery life of Symbian smartphones.

The introduction of a SQL database offers developers a well known interface for storing and retrieving high-cardinality application data. This, together with integrated P.I.P.S. – P.I.P.S. Is POSIX on Symbian OS - helps developers port existing applications from the desktop or server environment to Symbian OS with minimal effort and in less time.

Support for the new GEO property will encourage use of meeting location with positioning/LBS. The interoperability of calendars with Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes has been upgraded and support for Exchange ActiveSync Protocol (OTA) continues to deliver remote email, contacts and calendar synchronization.
