Nokia Releases New SDK

Nokia has released a new SDK for Series 40 6th Edition mobile devices. The Series 40 6th Edition supports the Nokia WebKit Open Source, Adobe Flash Lite 3.0, and the Java-based location API (JSR-179). The Series 40 6th Edition SDK provides application development, testing and debugging tools.

Series 40 6th Edition support for the Nokia WebKit Open Source Browser lets mobile content and service providers target Series 40 feature phones with full web look-and-feel. Webkit Browser features include the Pointer user interface, Incremental Page Rendering, Page Overview and Visual History browsing, and the user-favorite Minimap browsing that allows for easy screen navigation of full-size web pages.

The Series 40 6th Edition also supports the Adobe Flash Lite 3.0 platform, enabling rich graphical mobile content that is enhanced by an expanded main screen UI resolution that facilitates additional opportunities for development and delivery of industry-leading software and services. The Series 40 6th Edition's new HVGA Portrait 320x480 main screen UI resolution brings devices like the Nokia 6260 slide unprecedented access to streaming video, image rendering, mobile 3D graphics and scalable 2D Vector graphics.

Finally, the Series 40 6th Edition now includes location API (JSR-179), letting developers write location-aware applications that deliver new navigation and context-based services.

The Series 40 6th Edition SDK provides Java class libraries, APIs (including the Nokia UI API), relevant documentation and a device emulator for testing Java, Flash Lite and browser content.

"Nokia is very pleased to release our Series 40 6th Edition SDK, enabling developers to create a broad range of exciting new software and services focused on the dynamic mobile consumer market worldwide," said Tom Libretto, vice president, Forum Nokia, Nokia's global developer support program. "This latest SDK helps third-party developers to build richer multimedia applications and deliver advanced mobile services to the broad base of mobile subscribers served by Nokia Series 40 high-volume devices around the world."
