The Symbian Foundation has come to end the conversion of the Symbian platform with a proprietary system to an open source version that can be modified by anyone.
This is another step in the profound transformation of Symbian, which has just been completed. Since 2008, the Symbian Foundation is working to make open source the mobile operating system most used around the world in order to reinvigorate and bring its model of development platforms emerging.
Now the source code is open (it corresponds to Symbian ^ 3) and any company or individual can use or modify components for its own needs. This freedom will attract developers and encourage them to participate actively in improving the platform faster than could be the proprietary model used so far.
