StyleTap Announces Symbian Version

StyleTap has announced a version of StyleTap (officially called "StyleTap CrossPlatform for Symbian OS") for smartphones running the Symbian OS. This new version is planned for release in the first quarter of 2008.

StyleTap CrossPlatform for Symbian OS will support Symbian smartphones based on UIQ 3 and S60 3rd Edition, which includes smartphone models from Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Motorola.

See the news release for the full details.

Although the product is planned for release early in 2008, the software is working now in "alpha" mode – most of the APIs are working, most applications are running well, and we're confident that the remaining technical work is all doable. Although it is our usual practice to issue announcements only when the release is available, we chose to announce this release in London at the Symbian Smartphone Show, where we have enjoyed the support and encouragement from many of the folks at Symbian and UIQ.

We also know, based on the constant queries about support for Symbian devices that come to us via email, that there is a great deal of interest out there in the community. For all you Symbian smartphone users: please do not send us emails asking to be a beta tester just yet – stay tuned to this blog and when we're ready to go, we'll tell you about it here.
