Symbian OS, providing broadband speeds in your pocket. On mobile broadband
networks, FreeWay delivers the capability for super fast download speeds, high
quality audio/video streaming and crystal-clear VoIP calls.
high bandwidth that is suitable for Super3G/LTE, WiMax and beyond - ensuring
performance high enough to allow users to download an MP3 file in seconds.
FreeWay also guarantees users smooth switching between connection types and
networks so that they can remain mobile at all times. A key feature of FreeWay
is its compatibility with existing applications such as web browsers, allowing
these to take advantage of the benefits of FreeWay without any additional
Location Based Services
are often equated with the phrase 'the new
camera' referring to the fact that, in the same way most mobile phones now
feature cameras, most mobile phones will soon support GPS. This will allow the
user to take advantage of a number of different location based positioning
services. In anticipation of the ubiquity of location based services Symbian has
invested a considerable amount of development spend in ensuring we offer our
licensees a market leading LBS implementation. Devices featuring Symbian's LBS
solution are already shipping from NTT DoCoMo in Japan
The LBS presentation shows some of the typical LBS services made possible by
Symbian's LBS solution, running in real devices.
Today’s phones are becoming increasingly complex; running process heavy
applications such as GPS and digital TV, which require more efficient processing
to achieve optimum performance without compromising battery life. With this in
mind, Symbian is bringing symmetric multiprocessing to the devices of the
future. SMP works by spreading the workload of tasks across multiple processors,
on the same chip. The more challenging the task, the more processors are used.
In order to conserve power however, the additional processors fall dormant once
the task is complete. Watch the presentation below to see this in action.
