S60 3rd Edition is the newest generation of the world's leading smartphone software. S60 3rd Edition adds a host of fresh features while retaining those from the 2nd Edition. In addition, the 3rd Edition introduces a new level of flexibility and security into the platform, enabling manufacturers to create devices aimed at mass markets. The S60 platform therefore provides an open, secure, and scalable business opportunity to mobile operators and third-party developers.


S60 3rd Edition feature pack 1 introduces new features such as Firmware upgrade Over The Air (FOTA) and a new open-source browser. FOTA enables software upgrades to be performed over the air, initiated by either the user or operator. In addition to these, feature pack 1 also provides a flexible XML-based framework for UI customization and improvements in performance.

You are right Teo none of the current phones is having FP1 :evil: i was reading the pdf it says FP1 will also use new s60 symbian 9.2 OS so no chance we will get these phones in near future may be next wave of Nseries in mid next year :cry:

Something taken directly from one of the S60 blogs:
Software tends to bloat over time. It has happened to PC software and it seems to be happening to our product. I?m actually very proud when there is courage in the organization to drop some old features and I want to encourage doing it more often, especially when better usability is achieved. One example is dropping of Wallet application. Now we have also decided to drop resolution support for 176x208 and double of that from 3rd Edition FP1 onward. QVGA is becoming widely used standard resolution in smartphones. Display component prices are dropping and supporting reduced set of resolutions makes life in platform development easier, less verification and testing and I?m sure it helps also in 3rd party application development and testing.

There is an inbuilt scalable UI framework in the platform need for it is not going away. Market demand is for higher resolutions such as HVGA and VGA and platform is developing to this direction. We also have to keep in mind that platform is flexible and our customers, licensees, can finally implement something different and use scalability function. Nokia 5500 is a good example about this. It has 208x208 display resolution.

I see feature dropping, SW cleaning, very positively. Then there is solid ground to build up new functionality. To bloat it again someone would say.

An interesting thing I'd like to argue is to quote the thread OP.
S60 3rd Edition feature pack 1 introduces new features such as Firmware upgrade Over The Air (FOTA) and a new open-source browser.


The N80/3250/E61/E60/E70/N92/N93 ALL have the new Open-Source browser developed by Apple & Nokia based on khtml code and other web-standards. I thought that ALL these phones were already S60 3RD Edition FP1!

I just hope that they all can be firmware updated over USB to include FP1; would be the biggest rip off to find out they're not.

Just as long as they make a sleeker version of the N93 & the N80 with FP1 then it'll be worth it.

Once again AFAIK there is no phone with FP1 or FOTA at the moment and its very well known fact that it can?t be added by flashing. .. ..

I just hope that N93 will brings FP1 but I?m not so optimistic about, mainly coze I read somewhere that FP1 is related and comes together with OS 9.2 :hm:
