Symbian OS upgraded to 9.3

SymbianWe don’t cover much on the Symbian side of the house, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to! We’ve grown up on Windows Mobile devices over the last several years, but thankfully, the addition of Matt to the MobileTechRoundup podcast is bringing more of a Palm and Symbian perspective. In light of that, we should mention that the Symbian OS was just upgraded to 9.3 with the following:

  • Improved memory management and general speed boosts because of that
  • Native support for WiFi
  • Support for firmware OTA (FOTA), HSDPA, IPSec for UMA and push-to-talk over cellular (PoC)
  • There seems to be some real strides towards additional 3G and other voice/data support, which is fine by us. I’m sure we have plenty of Symbian device owners out there: do you prefer it over Palm and Windows Mobile, and if so, why?
