Details of the annual Smartphone Show now online

Published by at

The web site of Symbian's annual Smartphone Show is now more or less fully online. It's the 17th-18th October, of course, with the AllAboutSymbian meet on the evening of the 16th. New to the Show this year are extra developer sessions and admission to all for the main CEO keynote sessions - perhaps in an attempt to liven up what was quite a staid spectacle last year. The main floor is also extended, so there's more to see.

Smartphones are everywhere.

The mobile industry is delivering an ever broadening range of smartphones and uses for them, crossing markets and segments, creating a new smartphone lifestyle where everyone can do more: share more, achieve more, watch more, work more, listen more, play more, live more.

Symbian and its partners represent the biggest commercial opportunity for handset makers, content providers, developers and operators to profit from the smartphone lifestyle.

Visit the Symbian Smartphone Show to see more than 120 exhibiting companies, 60 free seminar presentations, and over 3000 attendees from the entire smartphone industry.

Do more with Symbian.

The Symbian Smartphone Show is the largest global dedicated smartphone event, and the meeting hub of the smartphone community.
