Nokia's New Series 60 Browser Uses Open Source Software
Uses Same Open Source Components That Apple Uses in Safari

"Open source software is an ideal basis for development since it enables Nokia to leverage and contribute to speedy software innovation and development," said Pertti Korhonen, Chief Technology Officer, Nokia, as Nokia announced today that it is using the same open source components, WebCore and JavaScriptCore, that Apple uses in its popular Safari Internet browser, as the basis of a new mobile browser for its world leading smartphone software, the Series 60 Platform.

Based on KHTML and KJS from KDE's "Konqueror" open source project, this software has enabled Safari to achieve industry-leading features and performance. Nokia intends to continue its collaboration with Apple and actively participate in the open source community to further develop and enhance these components, contributing Nokia's expertise in mobility.

"Nokia is excited to enrich Series 60 with optimized mobile Web browsing. As a result, the entire Series 60 value chain, from manufacturers and operators to end-users, will benefit from the flexible architecture, full Web compliance and a truly enjoyable user experience," Korhonen, added.

According to the "Smartphone360" study - Nokia-conducted consumer research among Series 60 smartphone users - over 50 percent of data traffic was generated by browsing.
