Symbian Foundation Release Plan Revealed

March 15th, 2009 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: Symbian | No Comments »

On the Symbian Foundation blog, David Wood revealed Symbian's plans to do a major release of the platform every six months. The Symbian versions that are currently in production are Symbian^2, Symbian^3 and Symbian^4.

The Symbian foundation is planning to have 5 versions in any state of development at any given moment.

Symbian^2, which is based on S60 5.1, reaches a functionally complete state at the middle of this year, and should be hardened by the end of the year.  This means that the first devices based on Symbian^2 could be reaching the market any time around the end of this year – depending on the integration plans, the level of customisation, and the design choices made by manufacturers. Symbian^3 follows on six months later – reaching a functionally complete state at the end of this year, and should be hardened by the middle of 2010.
