Reviewed by Nokia's subject matter experts, the authors cover the entire development process - from design, programming, and testing to debugging and deployment - while providing sixty projects, each with full C++ source code and installation scripts. This is a guide to Series 60 development for C++ programmers and software designers.
The Series 60 Platform is a multi-vendor, open standards-based platform for one-handed smart phone application development. It delivers applications ranging from Web browsing to games to e-mail and messaging services, as well as other PDA functions including synchronization with PC applications such as Outlook. It also allows for video recording and playback. Nokia not only develops its own smart phones using Series 60 but also licenses this development platform to other smart phone manufacturers. The bottomline: Series 60 presents developers with a compelling opportunity to create a new wave of applications and services for global deployment on handsets from multiple manufacturers. Series 60 Software Development, the first book in the Nokia Mobile Developer Series, will be the official guide for developers creating applications for mobile devices based on the feature-rich Series 60 platform. This book covers the complete suite of development tools available for this platform including Series 60 C++ SDK (software development kit) for the Symbian OS. The authors will also cover browser-based application development using WML and XHTML. The authors will explain how to design, develop, test and debug, and deploy real world applications ranging from games to multimedia messaging.
