Japanese Producers concentrates on Symbian Operating System for smartphones
Nokia software platform performs to be emulating heavily in an rampant intensely competitive market, and new launched applications from Japanese companies Sharp and Fujitsu could help considerably, when statistics reports counts the 11 new smartphones models running the Symbian software have been already ventured by the companies, thus massively backing up Nokia’s market performance.
Currently, Symbian is the biggest smartphone operating system since it has been used on more than 400 million phones starting in 2000. This prevalence was assaulted by the advent of the Apple iPhone in 2007. Japan is being a heavily presented market place for Nokia and Japanese manufacturers are embracing the operating system. Anyway, the operating system was imposed by a hard blow last year when Samsung Electronics and Sony Ericsson declared their abandonment of Symbian.

Nokia announced recently about its plans to take over development of the platform, starting April of 2011. It was not long time ago when Nokia handled the power over to the independent Symbian Foundation. Once Nokia reclaims power, the Symbian Foundation will retain responsibility on software licensing.

As per Mr. Ben Wood, research director at British consultancy CCS Insight, Japanese producers have efficiently created their own version of Symbian and are likely to continue using it regardless of Nokia’s taking back control.

"On this basis, it is likely they will continue to forge their own path. However, this approach does not deliver the economies of scale Nokia envisaged at the inception of the Symbian Foundation," Wood said in the official interview.

Nokia gets no direct revenues from other manufacturers utilizing the platform, though its own portfolio is assisted by the sets of independent software developed for implementing on the phone. This is in turn increased by a larger user array.

As per official reports, Nokia is working with 3M concept. The two World’s giants recently declared dedicated initiatives that show the increased emerge of smart ecosystems across industry sectors in 2010. 3M is about to start a new Mobile Interactive Solutions Division, a step that should profoundly announce some real boosts of innovations in smartphone screen displays, sensors and touch capabilities.
