Enriching the Mobile-Browsing Experience
Nokia's browser is based on platform-independent open-source components that enable developers to modify and advance the browser and port it to other mobile-phone platforms. This capability will not only bring full Web-browsing to many more mobile phones, but it will also establish a common reference implementation against which content developers can test. The smartphone market is expected to continue its fast growth, reaching close to 100 million units in 2006, so there are many exciting opportunities for the developer community to explore.
Forum Nokia Vice President Lee Epting will describe mobile browsing's emerging trends and technologies that will enrich the value proposition for all members of the value chain - from consumers and operators to developers and aggregators.
