Symbian Kernel goes open source

The Symbian Foundation says the Symbian Kernel (known as EKA2) is now open source, which has further simplified the development of applications for Symbian-powered mobile phones. It also makes it more likely that Symbian could move beyond its current heartland of mobile devices to become a popular choice for other portable technology, such as netbooks and ebook readers.

The Foundation’s next plan is to make the entire Symbian platform available under the free Eclipse Public License (EPL). It sets Symbian in direct competition with Android, each OS aiming to be the simplest and most flexible choice for developers. [Symbian blog]
