QuickOffice 6 - free upgrade
Along with the release of new version 6.2 of QuickOffice, a free upgrade to version 6 has been provided to users of all Nokia S60 smartphones. The range of the upgrade depends on the version that shipped preinstalled on the phone, which means that Eseries phones users get an upgrade with full viewing and editing capabilities whereas other phones owners get the "viewer" version only. Upgrade will be made available through QuickOffice's own Quickmanager, available under Options/Upgrades in the application menu. If you happen to have the viewing only version and you would like to have full editing functionality, you'll need to buy the full version and then you'll be eligible for the full viewing/editing upgrade.

Samsung Mobile Innovator - Win BIG with Wigets!
This year's Samsung IQ competition is now open with full details and support published to help you develop a Samsung Mobile Widget for the Samsung Omnia i8910 HD. There is a lot of excitement surrounding this device, particularly at the Symbian Foundation.

The best submission this year will take out a £15,000 first prize, while second and third place winners will receive £8,000 and £5,000 respectively. All winners will also have the opportunity to have their entry distributed through Samsung's MORE WIDGETS service. This feature is already included on the i8910 HD, but you'll soon be seeing it on a lot more Samsung handsets in the marketplace.

Why Samsung Mobile Widgets? Samsung IQ's purpose this year is to introduce Samsung Mobile Widgets and get you thinking about the opportunities they present to developers. You can find out more about Samsung Mobile Widgets from the Samsung IQ 2009 resources page in the Knowledge Base, but here are the highlights:

* Samsung Mobile Widgets follow the W3C draft standard for widget packaging and are delivered as WGT files.

* In the Touch Wiz UI, Samsung Mobile Widgets install to the home screen widget tray. They can be dragged from the tray to the home screen, and are launched and run directly on the home screen. This makes it possible to have multiple active widgets running simultaneously. The i8910 HD home screen supports up to three separate views, so that users can switch between different sets of widgets for different occasions.

* Samsung Mobile Widgets support multiple HTML pages. This gives you the opportunity to offer your users richer experiences by creating multi-view widgets, and makes it possible to provide fully localised content based on separate pages for each locale.

Like all widgets Samsung Mobile Widgets are based on standard web technologies including dynamic HTML, CSS, JavaScript and asynchronous XML requests. It is undoubtedly due to the relative ease with which these scripting languages can be mastered (compared to native languages), and the level of functionality that they offer the developer, that widgets have become so popular. This is evidenced by the numerous tools that have recently become available to assist mobile developers building widgets.

The possibilities for your Samsung Mobile Widget are limitless and that's why the choice of category is open and you're given complete freedom. The winning widgets will be those that provide an innovative solution to a current problem and improve the experience for the Samsung Mobile customer. They could even be widgets that you have already created modified to run on the Touch Wiz UI.

The only fixed thing is the deadline. All widgets must be submitted by Friday 14th August 2009 for judging. Winners will be announced in late August.

For more information and to submit your widgets visit the Samsung IQ website and the Samsung IQ 2009 Resources page.
