Mobile Innovation announces Series 60 Cover UI
Mobile Innovation today announced a Cover UI solution optimised for use on external screens of Series 60 based clamshell phones.

Mobile Innovation believes that many external screens of today's clamshell devices are under utilised. User needs are not met, the user experience isn't optimal, and the external screen is prime real estate that should be put to use more efficiently. Mobile Innovation's Cover UI solution addresses this problem, and without having to open the phone meets the needs of users who want to handle day–to–day events (such as answering or rejecting incoming calls, or reading messages) in a simple, intuitive and fun way. It allows the user to personalise the screen, expressing their style with full colour animations, icons and wallpapers. Furthermore, the Cover UI solution also creates a continuous user experience between the external screen UI and the internal screen UI, making it more consistent to use.

Mobile Innovation's Cover UI is a complete software solution that is available with minimal integration effort needed. It gives handset manufacturers and network operators the opportunity to enhance the value of their products, address more markets with user attractive features more quickly. For example, by using the Cover UI solution you can take and share pictures with the camera even without opening the phone.

CodeScanner analysis tools for Symbian OS
Mobile Innovation, the leading user interface (UI) designer, developer and integrator for mobile devices, today announced the launch of CodeScanner, a new suite of software analysis tools for Symbian OS. CodeScanner is a revolutionary static analysis tool which delves deep into code, exploring line by line for defects so that engineers can find tough problems more quickly than with traditional debug techniques. Better still, CodeScanner will allow engineers to fix defects during development, which is much more cost effective than remedying defects further into the lifecycle of the product. Virtually any text based files (including C++ source, MMP files, resources, and other documents) can be analysed. For more information please visit

Latest Symbian OS market numbers from Symbian CEO keynote
Talking about Symbian Expo in his keynote address David Levin, CEO, Symbian Ltd said:

"With Symbian OS shipments growing fast – 5 million Symbian OS phones shipped in the first half of 2004 alone, taking the Symbian OS installed base to more than 15 million – more and more companies in the Symbian ecosystem are working successfully to grow their businesses around Symbian and Symbian OS."

"At the beginning of October 2004, six Symbian OS Licensees were shipping 27 phones to more than 200 network operators and to retailers around the world. This compares to 23 products from 6 licensees at the end of Q2 2004. At the end of Q3 2004, ten Symbian OS licensees were developing 40 phones for all types of network technology, for launch around the world over the next 12 to 18 months. This compares to 34 products from ten licensees at the end of the second quarter."

"The five million phones shipped by Symbian OS licensees in the first half of this year is an achievement. But set against the size of the overall phone market, our success is modest; we’re just getting started. We believe that by 2008 or 2009 the addressable market – the number of phones with a hardware specification capable of running Symbian OS could reach as many as 200 million phones."

TI OMAP processor inside almost every Symbian OS phone
Symbian and Texas Instruments today announced that TI wireless technology, including OMAP processors, powers 28 of 31 Symbian OS-based 2.5G and 3G handsets either in-market today or scheduled to ship imminently.

TI and Symbian continue to collaborate closely and invest in initiatives to support Symbian's internal platform development, including Symbian's hardware and software integration and verification processes. These initiatives support ongoing development activities being undertaken by Symbian OS licensees and the wider Symbian ecosystem. This extensive engineering cooperation between the companies helps ensure this hardware and software platform remains a market-leading choice for smartphone manufacturers, technology partners and application developers.

Two new Symbian Press books for developers
Symbian today announced the launch of two new books at Symbian Expo. Symbian OS Explained written by Jo Stichbury and Programming PC Connectivity Applications for Symbian OS written by Ian McDowall are the third and fourth books released by Symbian Press in 2004 for Symbian OS developers.

Developing good C++ code on Symbian OS requires a clear understanding of the underlying concepts and the nature of the OS. Symbian OS Explained describes the key features of Symbian OS and shows how to use this knowledge most effectively, focusing on aspects of good C++ style that particularly apply to Symbian OS. Amongst others, the book includes sections on client-server architecture, active objects, leaves and cleanup, and the ECOM plug-in framework. However experienced you are with Symbian OS, there are always new tricks to learn and this book is designed to appeal to developers of all skill levels.

Programming PC Connectivity Applications for Symbian OS explains how developers can integrate PC and smartphone applications. PC Connectivity applications based on standard services and APIs can be created purely by programming on the PC, but more specialized applications involve programming on the Symbian OS smartphone as well as on the PC. This book aims to help developers create both types of application and includes sections on custom servers, socket servers, SMS and messaging classes and specialized connectivity GUI applications. It is also useful for enterprise and corporate developers, as Symbian OS provides one of the cheapest and fastest methods of connecting a smartphone to a server.
