My Next Phone

Posted by Lester Madden under Symbian

Strange week this, it’s the last week of Symbian. On Monday I’ll be a Nokia employee with a new Nokia email address. That of course means… time to chose a new phone.


Clarification on presenting at Mobile World Congress

Posted by Lester Madden under Symbian

Apologies for IE readers, parts of the site are not rending correctly.

If you’re interested in presenting on the Symbian Foundation stand at Mobile World Congress, I just wanted to clarify what smartphone devices currently use Nokia Series 60 5th Edition.

The only device currently available is the Nokia 5800

So if you want to be on the stand presenting you’ll need to make sure your application runs on one of these.

Nokia 5880



Mobile World Congress

Posted by Lester Madden under General

I spent most of last night researching WordPress themes so I can give the site a new lick of paint. I found the one I like and I am going to spend sometime over the weekend tweaking it. I’m actually pretty excited at the thought of looking at some PHP code, It’s been a while.

One of my big projects right now is what Symbian Foundation will be doing for developers at Mobile World Congress next month.  At the event we plan to have an Application Spotlight area where developers who have built applications using Series 60 5th Edition can showcase application on the foundation stand.  Yes thats right, we are allowing 3rd party developers to present their smartphone applications on our exhibition stand.

Time is short with the deadline being Friday to apply so for more information and to apply go here:   It’s a simple process of telling us little bit about your application, nothing scary.

If you are successful we’ll even give you 2 free exhibitor tickets worth €599 each, and tickets to the first ever Symbian Foundation party.

Wow has it really been that long since I last posted? Where has all the time gone?

What have I been up to since I last blogged, well I started working for Symbian who ship the OS for the worlds leading smartphones. If you’re using a Nokia device then chances are you using Symbian OS. My job is to get 3rd party developers and device developers to build using our OS. Yes that right I have entered the exciting world of marketing.
