Looking ahead to SEE 2009 (the annual Symbian smartphone show)
Yes, another year has passed and the annual Symbian bash is upon us. But with a slight twist, with the Symbian Foundation now well established and with the whole ecosystem, like much of the rest of the mobile industry, definitely in something of a state of flux. SEE (Symbian Exchange and Exposition) 2009 is free to attend and easy to get to. But what's on offer this year, what should you look out for? Steve Litchfield provides a few pointers...

Read on in the full article.

"Interestingly, there's no single Nokia stand - but you'll find Nokia on a number of other stands, helping out and showing hardware."
According to link in the article Nokia has a stand - stand number 13.

It's a community this time!
Steve, I think you're missing part of the point with the difference between SEE and Smartphone Show. This time it's not only about us (Symbian) and our corporate members announcing news, it's just as much about the community getting a chance to meet us and influence where we are going.

Something new that I think has gotten too little press is the BoF sessions:

These BoFs are open for anyone to come and attend. Shout at a package owner for not implementing something that should have been there 4 years ago, suggest new features, try things that are in the lab, tell us why feature X is so much better in Android, discuss where we should be going, etc.

The list is far from complete at the moment, but I think this could be one of the more interesting parts of SEE2009.

Oh, anyone can get in - honest! If the form insists on a company name and you don't want to put your employer, just put in your name again?

As this event is being held at Earls Court, it virtually IS Australia, in everything but location.

Thanks for the BoF plug - well, I guess you already covered it. BoF wasn't even mentioned, as far as I saw, on any of your SEE leaflets/web pages, so you can't blame me for not knowing about it. Maybe you could tell the event organisers?

Looking forward to the AAS pub meet!

Hopefully the BoFs will be good. I'm actually involved with the multimedia one, so if you're a developer interested in the internals of Symbian's multimedia systems please swing by and say hello!

Signed up. Hope to put some faces to names...

Hopefully we'll see more of what SF^2 is actually about in real terms (if anything other than S60v5 ;)).

I'd heard that said of Earl's Court, but when we stayed there (and exhibited at the show last year -- you can see us on the left of the first show floor photo :) ) we didn't see a single fellow Australian (well, around Earl's Court, anyway). Or maybe they'd all become pale and completely Londonish. ;)

I think the place has moved on from that reputation. There were more Filipinos there last year.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to enjoying the show without the pressure of having to exhibit.
