Nokia's had a long-standing relationship with mobile operating system maker Symbian
, but that doesn't mean the world's largest mobile phone maker wants to limit itself. Nokia's
newer "Open C" for use with its own S60 software development kit (SDK) is an effort to encourage open source application developers to take a stab at porting their existing apps to the Symbian platform on which S60 is based. Potential result? Getting some of those cool mobile Linux
apps sitting on that sweet Nokia S60 handset you may have.
