Symbian today announced two measures it hopes can further increase its lead in the smartphone market. The group has announced new pricing models that will make it easier for manufacturers to release low-cost or low volume phones based on the Symbian OS. License prices could be up to half as expensive depending on the retail price of the smartphone. Additionally, Symbian announced a new single-chip reference platform in conjunction with Freescale and Nokia. The design utilizes a WCDMA chip that is capable of handling calls and application processing in one unit. This should allow manufacturers and carriers to produce lower cost S60 smartphones capable of fully utilizing new 3G services.
