Nokia open source Symbian phone


http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8646715.stm

"The first handset to use the Symbian operating system since it became open source has been announced by Nokia."

Multi-touch, multi-tasking and a 12 megapixel camera.

If the phone is decent I think the fact that Nokia offers free maps and GPS (which you can download in full in advance rather than using bandwidth to download the maps on the fly) will make it an interesting proposition.
