E90 Communicator firmware now available
Nokia has just released an updated firmware for the Nokia E90 Communicator. At the moment, the update is only available for selected product codes (markets/languages) and unfortunately I am still waiting for my E90 version to be supported :( To get the update, download the latest version of Nokia Software Update program. Users who already updated their E90s report on our E90 Discussion Forum that AGPS is now supported (obtaining satellite fix is extremely quick now and the GPS receiver works great even indoors; make sure that positioning server in your settings is now as this can be changed to the old address if you restore a backup), Floating Point Unit (FPU) has been enabled (FPU version of Quake I works now smoothly even on the large internal screen) and the device feels considerably faster.

The future of Symbian OS: ScreenPlay, FreeWay and Demand Paging
Symbian Limited today announced new ground-breaking technologies to power future versions of the Symbian operating system. The newly announced technologies offer dramatic enhancements in the vital areas of graphics, connectivity and performance.

ScreenPlay is the new graphics architecture in Symbian OS. It gives users big screen effects in their pockets while ensuring long battery life. ScreenPlay is designed for mobile devices with user interfaces which integrate high definition video content, life-like games and animations. It significantly enhances content presentation in versatile, yet simple new ways - by using transparency and overlays, for example. ScreenPlay offers high performance in a scalable fashion - working purely in software on mid-range devices and taking advantage of hardware acceleration when present on high-end devices.

FreeWay is the new and unrivalled IP networking architecture in Symbian OS, providing broadband speeds in your pocket. On mobile broadband networks, FreeWay delivers the capability for super fast download speeds, high quality audio/video streaming and crystal-clear VoIP calls. FreeWay supplies high bandwidth that is suitable for Super3G/LTE, WiMax and beyond - ensuring performance high enough to allow users to download an MP3 file in seconds. FreeWay also guarantees users smooth switching between connection types and networks so that they can remain mobile at all times. A key feature of FreeWay is its compatibility with existing applications such as web browsers, allowing these to take advantage of the benefits of FreeWay without any additional development.

Demand Paging is an application of virtual memory seriously reducing physical memory (RAM) usage and making it possible to run large programs requiring more memory than available in the machine. It also dramatically speeds up phone boot up and application start times. This technology will be available in Symbian OS 9.3 and up.

Improved Symbian Signed Processes
Based on developer feedback, the Symbian Signed process has been improved to make signing faster, easier and cheaper for developers driving growth in the number of Symbian applications. Developers are now more easily able to access device capabilities that were once restricted, enabling further innovation. Symbian announced a new set of test criteria and procedures for testing and signing applications:

* Open Signed – provides a signing process using Developer Certificates enabling an application to be installed on a limited number of devices controlled by declared IMEIs (unique phone identification numbers). Open Signed is designed to support the developer community, open source and educational communities. The maximum number of devices that each application can be installed on has now been increased tenfold, from 100 to 1000.

* Express Signed – an entirely new process to allow software developers with Publisher IDs to instantly sign all applications that do not require access to the more sensitive device functions, allowing faster time-to-market. Developers can now sign applications on Expressed Signed for as little as $20.

* Certified Signed – for those applications that require access to the sensitive device manufacturer capabilities and/or where independent testing is required.

Symmetric Multi Processing (SMP) - multicore CPUs coming to Symbian OS
Symbian today announced Symbian OS support for the ARM Symmetric Multi-processor (SMP) architecture. SMP support in future versions of Symbian OS will use multiple CPU cores to provide "performance on demand" – battery life will be improved by accessing cores only when running demanding high-end multimedia applications and powering them down when they are not in use. The ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore multicore processor was announced earlier today at the ARM Developers' Conference. Symbian and ARM are working together closely on supporting Cortex-A9 MPCore multicore processor-based CPUs in Symbian OS.

SMP CPUs consist of multiple cores which can be individually powered up and down by the operating system. This delivers high performance for high-end applications such as games, browser-based intelligent services, and media-rich applications such as video streaming or TV recording, while offering low power consumption when the device is idle or executing less performance-critical tasks. Symbian has already started to deliver SMP technologies to its customers and will roll out the above incremental developments in future versions of Symbian OS. Details of this will be announced in due course. The first Cortex-A9 MPCore processor-based Symbian smartphones are expected in 2010.

Read full press release @ and More details about the ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor can be found here.
