which gives mobile device users more flexibility in their hardware choices, and offers mobile application developers the largest potential market for their applications with no additional development work required.
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) January 21, 2009
StyleTap Inc. today announced the release of StyleTap Platform for Symbian OS™, which allows over 30,000 existing mobile applications to run on current and future smartphones from Symbian vendors including Nokia, Samsung and Sony-Ericsson.
StyleTap Platform for Symbian OS brings the largest and most diverse library of smartphone applications to the largest community of smartphone users, with more than 150 million Symbian smartphones shipped to over 250 major network operators worldwide. StyleTap Platform is compatible with the vast majority of applications originally written for Palm OS® devices, and now enables them to also run on Symbian smartphones. This gives consumers unprecedented freedom to choose the smartphone that meets their needs while getting the most feature-rich and proven mobile applications.
"With this support for Symbian devices, StyleTap-compatible applications now run on millions more mobile devices than applications for any other mobile platform," said Gregory Sokoloff, president of StyleTap, "which gives mobile device users more flexibility in their hardware choices, and offers mobile application developers the largest potential market for their applications with no additional development work required."
A major new feature included in the Symbian version is a display scaling enhancement that allows applications to run in "hi-resolution" (320x320) mode, with the resulting screen graphically scaled to the actual display size. This feature significantly improves the look of applications designed for Palm Garnet devices.
StyleTap Platform for Symbian OS is the newest member of the StyleTap Platform family, which includes StyleTap Platform for Windows Mobile. The preview edition is a public extension of the beta testing process undertaken for StyleTap Platform for Symbian OS over the last year.
Interested users and developers can download a free 14-day trial of the preview edition at http://www.styletap.com/downloads.php, and can purchase StyleTap Platform for Symbian OS at the preview price of US$49.95.
