    System Requirements for Symbian OS v9

    He all,

    are there any system requirements for Symbian OS v9, especially for the Symbian Platform Security Architecture? I mean, any minimum requirements for CPU speed, RAM, ROM or any other preconditions concerning the hardware?

    Regards Tomster

    Re: System Requirements for Symbian OS v9

    System Requirements:
    ====================
    Basic Requirements:
    - Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4. Tested with Windows XP SP2.
    - IDE: CodeWarrior for Symbian OS v3.1
    - ARM RVCT compiler 2.2 build 503 or newer is supported. (Version 3.0 is not supported by SDK toolchain)
    - Minimum 1 GHz Pentium PC, 256 MB of memory
    - Up to 1.5 GB free disk space, other requirements as required by the IDE used.

    Additional Requirements:
    - Installation/uninstallation and using of the SDK requires local admin rights.
    - Active Perl 5.6.1 build 631 for SDK build tools. Newer or older versions of Perl may not be fully compatible with Symbian toolchain. Perl must be installed before using the SDK to build applications.
    - Java Runtime version 1.4.1_02 or later is required.
    - Casira hardware is required for Bluetooth connectivity emulation.
    Guess where am I quoting from? BTW, the thing about Casira is not valid anymore, since the SDK BT Driver was published.

    You can read the "README" which comes with all SDKs...

    You mean the release notes, which can be downloaded separately so you can figure out if you should or not download the full SDK.

    He,

    sorry, but I meant the mobile phone hardware requirements for Symbian OS v9, not the PC-Sytstem requirements for the SDK. I just wanted to know, if there are any minimun hardware needs to get Symbian OS v9 working on a mobile phone.

    Thanks and I hope for further replies

    Re: System Requirements for Symbian OS v9

    I don't know if such is listed anywhere. Asked Symbian? Some indication by, e.g., looking at the original S60 3rd Edition devices and choosing the slowest devices with least memory, such as 3250, N71, N73:

    I hope that it is clear here that you cannot simply install Symbian OS on some hardware as you would do when installing the OS of your choice on a PC.

    Right, it'd really matter for an actual Symbian operating system licensee with hardware (reference hardware or actual production device manufacturer).
