This support ensures a smooth evolution from existing Java applications to new and richer applications. The Java implementation in Series 60 brings enhanced graphics functionality, Bluetooth APIs, support for various secure HTTP connection types, advanced multimedia APIs, and messaging APIs. And to ensure seamless application usability, Series 60 also uses the same application installer and application menu for Java and native Symbian applications.
The Series 60 Platform has also been enhanced with several other new features that are designed to add value for licensees, developers, and operators, and to further expand the user experience. For example, Series 60 offers expanded possibilities for personalization. A user will be able to switch between different sets of icons, wallpapers, screensavers, background bitmaps, and color schemes offered by an operator or other service portal. For messaging, Series 60 now provides enriched presentation capabilities in MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) through enhanced SMIL.
