Posted: 23-Feb-2000 [Source: Reuters]

[The Symbian reference design for pen based wireless platform will be used in a future Motorola phone according to this report.]

Hannover -- "Technology group Symbian on Wednesday launched a wireless computing platform for handsets and other devices and said it would be used in a phone from co-owner Motorola due in the first half of 2001.

"It said the system, called ``Quartz,'' would combine the functions of a personal organizer with wireless applications such as electronic mail, World Wide Web browsing, fax and telephony services, plus short-range wire free connections using Bluetooth technology.

"``The pen-based communicator reference design enables licensees to rapidly bring to market devices that are optimized for wireless voice and data communications,'' Symbian said in a statement at the CeBiT technology fair.

"Symbian management told a news conference the open platform could be modified according to the demands of its licensees, who will be able to bundle together content and applications from over 24,000 registered Symbian developers.

"They did not comment on features that will be available in Motorola's upcoming model.

"Chief Executive Colly Myers said there was also interest in Quartz from some of Symbian's other owners, which include Psion , Ericsson, Nokia and Matsushita Communication Industrial Corp.
