In the meanwhile, I have been working with Nokia Series 60 SDK in C++ and developed some basic examples,... ( I'm still trying to better understand Symbian),... still, I can already say, that there are some great things about it ! :D

I searched the forum for symbian-developing with freepascal and found out, that sekel is working on a port, but the last post was in october 2007. So I wanted to ask, how far this project have got in the last few months? And will I be able to develop for my Nokia 9300 with Symbian OS 7.0, when the port is done?

It's all explained here:


I got some hello world level applications working for UIQ 3, and now I'm focusing on UIQ 2, althougth I got out of time in the last months.

About developing for Nokia 9300. I took a quick look and it's a Series 80 phone, so the answer is no. Even after I finish this port, you won't be able to develop for it, because I'm targeting UIQ 2 phones. (blame Symbian for developing various incompatible SDKs and libraries for the same operating system)

Ah, ok, didn't knew what this Series 60/80 meant... So I will have to learn C++ :wink: But thanks for answering the question anyway!
