Symbian launches Symbian OS v7.0s
Symbian announced the latest version of Symbian OS. Symbian OS is licensed by some of the biggest mobile phone manufacturers including Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, Siemens and Sony Ericsson.

Symbian has enhanced Symbian OS in four particular areas:

  • Telephony and Networking – Symbian OS v7.0s implements Multiple PDP contexts and a Quality of Service framework. Multiple PDP contexts allow users of mobile phones based on Symbian OS v.7.0s to access more than one network service at the same time and with varying QoS. Users can access email whilst simultaneously surfing the web or downloading an application. For network operators, this allows multiple, simultaneous revenue streams from a single handset, each with a different QoS and each with a different charging model.
  • Java MIDP 2.0 – Symbian has upgraded its Java implementation to Java MIDP v2.0, enabling more capable Java applications than previously e.g. games applications which exploit Bluetooth and messaging capabilities. Also, Symbian OS v7.0s deploys Sun’s new Java virtual machine which enables significant improvements in Java application performance. These enhancements improve the user’s experience of using Symbian OS phones as well as encouraging over-the-air download of Java applications offered by network operators and other third parties.
  • Multimedia – Symbian has introduced a lightweight, multi-threaded multimedia framework (MMF) which enables high-performance audio, video and imaging capabilities for Symbian OS applications. The MMF is designed to meet the needs of high performance media-centric applications such as video players, midi engines and particularly games.
  • Languages – Symbian OS v7.0s now offers support for Arabic and Hebrew languages.
