This is a great news. Symbian already leads the mobile OS market at 60% share, and making it Open Source and Royalty Free license will help it grow even faster.
Nokia is also going to buy Symbian Ltd. and contribute it to new Symbian Foundation, while Sony Erricson and NTT DoCoMo are also going to contribute to foundation.
Later in 2009, we will have a new Symbian OS version which will integrate all the features of S60 and UIQ into one OS. So, Adobe’s Open Screen and Open Source Symbian would be real good platform to build cool experiences.
