Nokia moves to Open Source

The news from Computerworld [via Rajesh Jain] makes me smile larger. Nokia is implementing Webcore, the open source web-rendering engine from Apple Computer, which is based on the KDE Project's KHTML engine.

My reasons to smile are not just with implementation of Webcore alone but looking at the larger picture of tie-ups & colloboration with Apple & Nokia. Both are design driven, functionally superior and customer friendly organisations in their respective domains. With a love affair between the two is just starting, we can expect an exchange of ideas between these two companies. Already, the grapevine is talking about iPhones and partnership with Motorola.

Going by the current news, the partnership for mobile market will extend to Nokia too. It will be good then for the lifestyle-driven customers.
