Nokia, Apple team on new mobile web browser
www.chinaview.cn 2005-06-14 10:23:43

    BEIJING, June 14 -- Nokia announced on Monday a partnership with Apple Computer in developping an open-source web browser for its world leading smartphone software, the Series 60 Platform.

    The software uses the same open-source components, WebCore and JavaScriptCore, that are found in Apple's Safari web browser.

    "Open source software is an ideal basis for development since it enables Nokia to leverage and contribute to speedy software innovation and development." said Pertti Korhonen, Chief Technology Officer of Nokia.

    The two companies said the new mobile browser would be available starting early next year which will enable wireless carriers to offer more robust services to the consumer.

    All the features currently present in the Series 60 browser will be available in the new product. Nokia expects to add more features to enhance the browsing experience for its users, too.

    According to a study Nokia conducted, over 50 percent of the data traffic from cellphones was generated by browsing.
