    You propably would need to port it, i.e. develop the application in a development kits that are made for devices you want to get the application to work in, and see what parts of your code, and/or logic can be reused..

    You should check the S40 device development options, I suppose the only thing you can do with them is Java MIDP..

    That's because S40 phones are not using Symbian OS, thus, you have to use the development options available for them, just as I said in the last post already.

    And if more clarification is needed there is no Symbian based Palm device and Windows Mobile is obviously not Symbian either.

    When we talk about Nokia there is no such thing as non-S60 Symbian C++. The UIQ-based devices are Symbian as well so your Symbian C++ application will be easy to modify to make it work on those devices.

    For any other devices using any other operating system you will have to re-write the application using the supported programming language and the APIs provided by that OS.

    "The UIQ-based devices are Symbian as well so your Symbian C++ application will be easy to modify to make it work on those devices."

    What is UIQ-based devices?
    do you more clarify about it?Is that means that i am able to port my application in another based device?

    UIQ is (or rather was) a Symbian OS based software platform, like S60. Here's a list of the UIQ phones: http://uiq.com/phones/

    Re: Import To other devices like Palm, MS Mobile and previous version of Nokia

    Thanks Itomuta for reply.

    I saw the list of UIQ based devices.So if i want to import my application(which is now running in my Nokia N93 device) which part should i need to change?
    Or which part i need to give more concentration?

    Is it possible to develop/improve/change code it in 9.1 SDK and Carbide.c++ editor and test it on the same emulator?

    Thanks in advance.

    No, you cannot use an S60 SDK to develop aplications for an UIQ phone, you need an UIQ SDK that matches the corresponding phone. The UIQ and S60 SDKs however would have to be built on top of the same OS version in order for you to be able to re-use as much as the code as possible.

    The main diference bwtween the two platforms is at UI level. It is likely that your calendar relatd code will remain the same but the UI will have to change. Everithing that starts with CAkn* is S60 specific and will not be supported on UIQ and that includes for example the base class for your UI, the CAknAppUI. To start with, create a hello world app with both of the SDKs and compare the generated code.

    There should be some document in this site about porting apps to S60, find it, read it and apply it backwards On UIQ you might find similar document as well.
