    This means hacking and cooking ain't illegal anymore?

    EDIT: Then why the efforts on Nokia's behalf on making the FW unhackable?

    Default Symbian OS Now Open Source!



    Starting today, the source code for the Symbian platform has been made open source and available for download.

    “The dominant operating system provider out there is Symbian,” says Lee Williams, executive director of the Symbian Foundation, “and now we are offering developers the ability to do so much more.”

    Symbian is the operating system used on the majority of Nokia mobile phones and according to statistics it runs on a massive 330 million device. The operating system has been used by Nokia for about 10 years now.

    The move to open source for Symbian has actually arrived about 4 months early and by doing this will certainly allow for more developers to work on the OS to modify the code to suit their needs. According to Lee Williams, this move puts Symbian in a far better place than Android who are also open source because Google [GOOG] have only opened up about 1/3rd of their OS.

    After Nokia released Ovi Maps Navigation for free allowing navigation in most places around the world, it certainly gets a 1 up on Google who is currently restricted to navigation in just the US. Also by now making the whole of Symbian open source I can see some very good things happening for Symbian over the next few years.
