Nokia goes on open source Safari

Thursday, November 03, 2005

Nokia, the mobile phone giant has created an open-source browser based on Safari for smartphones. This team of Nokia and Safari will deliver a web browser for the S60 smartphone sotware platform.
Nokia says the browser, which will be made available to other companies licensing the S60 platform for their own smartphones, will give users a better surfing experience. It is designed to display Web pages on a phone exactly as they look on a monitor.
The browser includes pop-up blocking, access to RSS feeds and a text search feature. It uses components from Apple's Safari Web Kit — the open source engine for mobile devices based on KHTML — and KJS from KDE's Konqueror open source project.
With the availability of high speed wireless data networks, the operators and handset makers are trying to bring the entire web to your mobile phone. Nokia has also launched as a portal to all its open source projects.
