LG Electronics licenses the Series 60 Platform for its Symbian OS-based smart phones

March 22, 2004, CTIA, Atlanta, GA - LG Electronics and Nokia today announced a licensing agreement for the Series 60 Platform. Series 60, licensed by Nokia to mobile device manufacturers, is a mobile device software platform for advanced smart phones optimized for the Symbian operating system (OS). LG Electronics joins as the newest member of the Series 60 licensee community that is made up of world-leading manufacturers, including Lenovo, Panasonic, Nokia, Samsung, Siemens and Sendo.

LG Electronics, a top provider of mobile devices, will license the Series 60 Platform as source code. The source code enables licensees to further develop and differentiate the software for Series 60-based products while maintaining the underlying application interoperability.

"We are anticipating the unique features and functionalities that the Series 60 Platform will bring to our product portfolio and look forward to working in the Series 60 community. Our target is to build ubiquitous mobile devices that will best serve our customers. Series 60 on top of the Symbian OS will provide us with a compatible platform for our smart phones throughout our CDMA, GSM/GPRS and WCDMA portfolio," said Yong E. Shin, Vice President, UMTS Handset Laboratory in LG Electronics.

"LG Electronics has an outstanding record of making appealing and advanced mobile devices for all major markets and network protocols," said Antti Vasara, Vice President, Technology Marketing and Sales, Nokia. "LG Electronics' decision to license the Series 60 Platform further strengthens the platform's position as the most competitive handset software on the market. We look forward to collaborating with LG Electronics in the Series 60 community," he continued.

The Series 60 Platform encompasses the software, user interface (UI) and applications necessary to create a smart phone. Optimized for the Symbian OS, the Series 60 Platform strives to enable significant creativity and differentiation by licensees. In addition, the common software platform ensures interoperability and application compatibility between the different licensees' smart phones.

The success of the Series 60 platform among its licensees has led to a large Series 60 device base and a diverse product portfolio. The licensees, together with operators and developers, drive innovation into the platform by exploiting their vast experience and expertise in the mobile communication industry. This relentless innovation enhances the competitiveness of the Series 60 Platform.

I was not aware that they had also signed for UIQ?

There was an announcemnt last month that LG had signed to use Symbian but I dont think any UI was mentioned. I cant find anything on the UIQ website.
