Symbian Offers PDK of Symbian ^2, Confirms Death of S60
According to the Symbian Foundation Blog, Symbian has recently released the first PDK (Product Development Kit) for Symbian ^2. The PDK includes several tools for developers, including the full version of the Symbian OS and S60 OS, as well as bits of NTT DoCoMo's MOAP OS and Sony Ericsson's UIQ OS. These are the tools that developers and handset makers will need to bring Symbian ^2 devices to market. Further, in the blog post author Anatolie Papas admits that the S60 brand "will soon cease to exist." S60 is the platform that Nokia uses for its E series and N series devices. Nokia, itself, has not said what platform it will use to replace S60. Symbian ^2 is the first major OS release by Symbian in its new configuration, which should be available in handsets late 2009 or early 2010. Symbian will then follow a six-month release cycle, and release Symbian ^3 by the end of 2009, and so on.
