Symbian OS becomes more and more popular. Now Symbian has shipped 30 million phones up until the end of November 2007.

”Kiyohito Nagata, Senior Vice President Managing Director, Product Department Products & Services Division NTT DoCoMo, Inc. commented “The robustness, security and ease of customisation of Symbian OS contributes greatly to a short development time and the possibility of development for a wide variety of handsets, and I am sure that this is linked to today’s announcement that there have now been over 30 million Symbian smartphones shipped in Japan. We will further strengthen our partnership with Symbian with the view to developing new features quickly.”

Haruhiko Hisa, President, Symbian Japan, said: “We are proud to have reached a significant milestone in Japan, through the close collaboration we have with our network operator, handset manufacturer and ecosystem partners. With the recent launch of new Symbian technologies: FreeWay, ScreenPlay and Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP), Symbian OS is well placed to power the high demands and new capabilities, such as Super3G, being rolled out in the Japanese market.”
