Nokia rivals raise stakes in Symbian

Nokia was foiled in it’s attempt to buy a larger share of the British software maker Symbian. Sony Ericsson, Siemens and Panasonic all bought shares restricting Nokia’s control to less than 50%.

That’s an interesting development, as it show’s that Sony Ericsson etc. think that Symbian is too good to let Nokia control it. Nokia uses the software in it’s series 60 phones and obviously sees the software as important to it’s future.
