Safari on Smartphones

Mobile phone manufacturer Nokia has announced that the next generation of web browsers for its smartphones will be based on Apple Computer's Safari browser for Mac OS X. The phones, which previously ran a mobile version of the Opera browser, use the Symbian Series 60 smartphone user-interface. Nokia has said nothing yet concerning its Series 80 models, but it is expected that they will continue to use the Opera browser that Nokia licensed for them in March. The most interesting part of this new development is the fact that, with the addition of a mobile Safari, Nokia hopes to enter and "actively participate" in the open source community. The new browser will be available in early 2006.
