Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Symbian is already the dominant mobile operating system, where
do you see future growth potential?
"We had a visit in September from a big delegation of top brass
from China Mobile who came to visit Symbian and signed an MOU on
collaboration. We have an enormous amount of alignment and
obviously TD-SCDMA is high on their agenda - the recently launched
6788 is Nokia’s first Symbian TD-SCDMA handset.
"The potential numbers in China are absolutely enormous and this
gives China Mobile a degree of influence over what happens in their
market, and they would like an open independent platform that is
royalty free, open source and not controlled by anyone. And
that’s what we are in the process of trying to create."
