Nokia announced today that it has decided to use 'best of breed' open source software as the basis of the next-generation mobile browser for its Series 60 smartphone platform.
The software is based on KHTML and KJS from KDE's Konqueror open source project.
Nokia intends to continue its collaboration with Apple and actively participate in the open source community to further develop and enhance these components.
"Open source software is an ideal basis for development since it enables Nokia to leverage and contribute to speedy software innovation and development, " said Pertti Korhonen, chief technology officer at Nokia.
"Open source development also enables close co-operation with the industry's best innovators."
The new Series 60 browser will be available to all Series 60 licensees as a standard Series 60 application during the first half of 2006.
