  UIQ 3 platform
UIQ is a customizable pen-based user interface platform for media-rich mobile phones based on Symbian OS. UIQ offers users enchanting interaction through its pen-based user interface and large display. UIQ 3 is a media-rich, flexible and customizable software platform, pre-integrated and tested with Symbian OS v9, providing core technologies and services such as telephony and networking. UIQ 3 gives mobile phone manufacturers the possibility to create a portfolio of phones, highly diversified with different phone styles based on one single codeline. UIQ 3 is designed to provide an excellent user experience with easy access to advanced 2.5G and 3G network services. UIQ 3 based phones offer more fun and functionality than ordinary phones: a full messaging suite, Internet capabilities, wireless mobile gaming with other users, downloading of enterprise information and applications – all increasing the amount of data transferred through an operator’s network.
