    Starting Symbian s60v2 or s60v3 what YOU suggest ?

    Hello, i have nokia n70 with symbian s60v2 and i want to start program symbian, i know c++ in 1 to 10 scale its 5 or 6...
    So what you recomendsi know emulator is in carbide but i want to have device in my hand):
    to buy s60v3 device and start learning or to learn s60v2 and test on my n70 and later (in few months anyway) buy s60v3 device for example n82 or n79 and than learn symbian again ?

    if i will learn s60v2 now - it is difficult (big changes) to upgrade my skills to know s60v3 or not ? are there many changes in api etc ?

    or to start learning s60v3 now and dont think about s60v2 ?

    There is nothing to learn much if you are jumping from version to version...
    It is only on using different APIs to achieve the same objective...that can be done by studying the release notes and the understanding the differences between the versions..

    So you can start doing sample codes with any of the versions...since the programming design of symbian cud be learned, Active objects, thread handling, UI handling these wud be the areas which wud be different from the routine...
    And also you have the wiki and knowledge base with vast code snippets and forums for assistance...
    So happy programming...

    Definitely start with S60 3rd edition. S60 2de edition is hardly used at all anymore. Most new third party applications won't support it for instance.

    You can do a lot with only the S60 3rd edition emulator for starter. If like me running your application on a phone raises your motivation level then do buy a device. I strongly recommend the N95, it's by far the best S603rd edition device IMHO, and most likely the one with the biggest market penetration.

    If you won't be getting a 3rd edition device for a few months then go ahead and start now on 2nd edition. The basic principles that Deepchand mentioned do not change.

    Nothing is better then Programming on a platform and seeing the result on device. I also suggest going with v2.x SDKs.

    try starting from through http://www.forum.nokia.com/I_Want_To..._Started.xhtml
