[Metrowerks today released an 'all-in-one' CodeWarrior developer kit for Symbian Series 60 devices like 3650, 7650, and N-Gage.]

San Jose, CA -- Nokia, the global leader in mobile communications, and Metrowerks, maker of CodeWarrior(tm) software and hardware development tools and services, today announce the release of an all-in-one developer kit for the Series 60 Platform. Metrowerks will distribute the advanced kit, which makes Series 60 application development in the CodeWarrior environment possible for the first time.

Included in the new CodeWarrior Wireless Development Kit for Symbian OS(tm), Nokia 3650 Edition is the popular Metrowerks CodeWarrior Development Studio for Symbian OS(tm) v2, Personal Edition, and the newly released Series 60 SDK for Symbian OS(tm), jointly developed by Metrowerks and Forum Nokia, Nokia's global developer program.

Also included in the bundle is a commercial-release version of Nokia's newest Series 60 mobile device, the Nokia 3650 tri-band phone. The specially priced bundle provides everything required to allow programmers to write, debug, test, and deploy games and other applications right out of the box.

"The new CodeWarrior Developer Kit for Series 60 Platform makes the platform easily accessible within one of the most popular mobile development environments," said Niklas Savander, Senior Vice President, Nokia Mobile Software. "We are pleased to see more and more new Series 60 based applications being brought to market. An influx of programming talent, such as the large community of Code Warrior developers, will further strengthen the position of the Series 60 as the world leading smart phone platform."

Series 60 devices provide rich communications and enhanced applications consisting of telephony and personal information management applications, browser and messaging clients, and a modifiable user interface designed for easy, one-handed operation. Series 60 is licensed to Nokia, Panasonic, Samsung, Sendo and Siemens, which together represent almost two-thirds of the global handset market. Running on top of the Symbian OS, an operating system for advanced, data-enabled mobile phones, Series 60 supports open and common key technologies, such as MMS, Java, WAP/XHTML, and C++ / Symbian OS (native).

"The Series 60 is a powerful multimedia platform that can support a new generation of mobile applications - from interactive games, to multimedia messaging, to location-based services," said David Clifton, vice president of segment marketing, Metrowerks. "This special kit equips developers to quickly and easily harness the power of the Series 60 Platform."

Metrowerks CodeWarrior Development Studio for Symbian OS(tm) is a comprehensive, integrated set of software programming tools that enable developers to create, debug and compile C/C++ Symbian applications for Series 60 and other supported platforms based on Symbian OS. The tool set provides timesaving features including complete Symbian build components and descriptor presentation inside the debugger.

"CodeWarrior is a well-tested, well-developed toolset that has been successful in multiple environments, including game development," said Paul Zorfass, Senior Analyst, Embedded Solutions, IDC. "Given Nokia's market share, and the capabilities of their Series 60 Platform, I expect this toolkit to result in a number of advancements in mobile software in the months ahead."
