    Python for Series 40

    Is a project in the works to get python to the series 40 phones?
    Why is it only for the series 60 phones?

    I really like using the python language but only have a series 40 phone.

    The Python implementation in all likelihood requires a high-level phone operating system. The Series 60 phones are based on the Symbian operating system.

    Series 40 phones use a very limited Nokia proprietary real-time operating system and you can only add applications in Java (and writing a Python interpreter/compiler on top of the very limited mobile Java environment is probably quite difficult, if not entirely impossible).

    Time to switch to a more powerful phone, then?
