No, it won't work. Symbian S60 (the one used on Nokia) is different (user interface) from the Symbian UIQ (the one used on Sony Ericsson P series).

The W series is completely different, not running Symbian at all.

If you want to use on non-Symbian devices, then you will have to create the application with J2ME, I am afraid.

The w800 does not use Symbian. If you develop for Symbian S60 it will not run on Symbian UIQ and it will not run on non-Symbian devices.
