    Re: Programming the nokia 6680

    Kiran already described the Symbian C++ programming, which is the most powerful approach to create programs on Symbian phones, but even if you are familiar with C++ programming, it takes a while to become productive.

    Two other programming options are Java ME and Python

    This short FAQ poinst you to right direction for Java programming

    There is also plenty of documentation and example applications available both on Forum Nokia and Sun's Java ME pages (http://java.sun.com/javame)

    The Java SDK for your phone is available here

    On Python side, you should download the latest Python S60 build (version 1.3.1) for your phone from http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...roup_id=154155
    There is also some documentation available there.

    For a general Python tutorial, please go to http://python.org

    Of course you can also use Flash Lite to create graphical applications. for more info see http://www.adobe.com/mobile/
