Smartphones have become rather powerful little devices
you always have on your person, whatever the time or situation.
In case of devices running the Symbian Series60
operating system you have a large choice of freely available native software helpful in most diverse situations. And this is on top of the usual Java Micro Edition applications you are limited to on more proprietary platforms like Nokia's entry line Series40
, many Sony-Ericsson phones based on their Java Platform
messaging devices. Naturally, with the advent of the iPhone, all manufacturers are in the process of redefining their product line in that application platform respect.
