[MARCH 18, 2003/ADT'S PROGRAMMERS REPORT] - Dev toolmaker Metrowerks is teaming with mobile handset maker Nokia Corp. to offer an all-in-one developer kit for the Series 60 mobile phone platform. Unveiled at the Game Developers Conference, held recently in San Jose, Calif., the Series 60 SDK for the Symbian OS gives users of CodeWarrior a way to build applications for this mobile smartphone platform for the first time.

Developed by Austin, Texas-based Metrowerks and Forum Nokia, the company's global developer program, the new SDK comes bundled in Metrowerks' CodeWarrior Wireless Development Kit for Symbian OS, Nokia 3650 Edition, along with the CodeWarrior Development Studio for Symbian OS v2, Personal Edition. The bundle also comes with a commercial-release version of Nokia's Series 60 mobile device, the Nokia 3650 tri-band phone.

Running on top of the Symbian OS, an operating system for advanced, data-enabled mobile phones, Series 60 is a multimedia platform that supports open and common key technologies, such as MMS, Java, WAP/XHTML and C++ / Symbian OS (native).
