Nokia: Interest in Symbian Foundation growing

The Symbian Foundation, created last month when Nokia purchased Symbian, is rapidly growing, says Nokia. Another nine companies have joined the organization, including mobile operators 3, America Movil and TIM along with semiconductor company Marvell and services and software providers Aplix, EB, EMCC Software, Sasken and TietoEnator. About 150 organizations have registered their interest in joining, according to Nokia. The Symbian Foundation is expected to begin operations during the first half of 2009, subject to completion of the Nokia/Symbian acquisition. The first devices based on the Symbian Foundation's open-source code are expected to arrive in 2010. Article
