The Symbian platform gives you the power to do more with mobile. The platform - a software asset benefiting from more than 10 years of industry-wide investment and expertise - is used to produce every type of handset from compact feature phones to high-end smartphones. In fact, it is inside many of the cutting-edge mobile phones you see on the high street today.
