Nokia goes open source, turns to Apple

Nokia is tapping Apple Computer's open-source knowledge for its next generation smart phone browser. Future versions of Nokia's Series 60 browser will give users new browsing features while better enabling developers to customize the application. The software will use two components already utilized by Apple's Safari Web browser, which runs on the company's Mac OS X operating system. Nokia also says it will work with Apple on future open-source technology and will become actively involved in the open-source community. Nokia licenses its browser to an array of companies, including LG Electronics, Lenovo Mobile, Panasonic Mobile Communications and Samsung Electronics.
