Sharp planning to use Symbian OS in future phones

As reported by TechJapan Sharp is planning to use Symbian in future phone, intially in its higher end offerings. Sharp see Symbian as a way to eaiser global distribution and diffferentiation of their handsets (currently 70% ship domestically). Not all Sharp phones will be Symbian OS powered, but it is clear that Symbian is at the heart of Sharp's future phone startegy.

Quote:

Mr. Matsumoto said that, "we currently ship 70% of our units domestically, but we would like to bring our international shipments up to 50% of the total. In this case, cellular phones featuring the Symbian OS would be easier to distribute throughout the world, and it would be easier to 'make a differentiation.' While we do not intended to have all of our products utilize the Symbian OS, we would like to gradually increase the percentage of our high-functionality products featuring the Symbian OS."
