Symbian C++, OpenC, Java™ technology, Python, Flash Lite, and Web technologies including Nokia’s Web Run Time. Refocusing energy on Web 2.0 to address the long tail New Audience: Creative Professionals, Web Developers, Flash Developers, Open Source Developers, Prosumers New Technologies: AJAX, WRT, Flash and Silverlight In the past o ur developer community, although large, was essentially made up of mobile developers who spent time and invested heavily in becoming familiar with Java as well as C++ and Symbian native programming. And they were extremely attracted to the sheer volumes that Nokia represents (many more eyeballs on mobile devices than PCs of course). T hat’s been the case for a long time, however those sheer numbers are not enough today, and we have found that the technology palate needs to support a wider variety of tools and technologies that enable developers to leverage what they know on top of Symbian. Web 2.0 technologies in a general sense have meant to us is that the readily accessible technologies like AJAX, and various web run times in a mobile context, Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, have opened up brand new communities for us to talk to including the creative professional and traditional web developers for whom the PC was once their only outlet.
