By Open Sourcing Symbian, Nokia Kicks Off the Mobile Age

The mobile software age is here.

Symbian co-founder Nokia announced Monday night that it is buying the 52 percent of the software maker that it doesn’t already own and releasing its mobile operating system under an open source license.

With that move, Symbian joins two other major platforms — the Google-backed Android operating system and Apple’s OS X iPhone — that give programmers tools for creating and deploying software for smartphones.

The Symbian OS dominates the world market, with about 60 percent of the installed base among smartphones.
