S60, UIQ and MOAP united to create one open mobile software platform

In a major re-organisation Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola and NTT DOCOMO will unite the various flavours of Symbian - and join with remaining stakeholders AT&T, LG, Samsung, ST Microelectronics and - Texas Instruments to establish the Symbian Foundation.

The aim of the foundation is to extend the appeal of the unified software platform, available for members under a royalty-free licence.
