“More than 4 billion people around the world now use cell phones, and for 450 million of those people, the Web is a fully mobile experience,” according to the McKinsey Global Institute. This explosive growth of mobile is having a significant impact on B2C and B2B businesses.

Mobile-enablement, however, is more than just tailoring your website’s content to fit a smaller screen. There are several options and challenges involved in going the mobile route.

Come listen to two experienced practitioners discuss key elements that will be crucial in your mobile strategy, on June 2nd, 2011 at 2 PM EST.

Setting up Symbian OS development Environment

Leave a comment


This procedure that is to be explained is for Symbian OS development in Windows and not for Mac. I found a link (http://www.randomtype.com/?p=103) which stated there is a Plug-in available for Xcode to develop for symbian OS. But the link s was broken. So If some one knows a way to set up environment in Mac just share it.

Now lets get in to the procedure:

1. Install the latest ActivePerl available from the following link
http://www.activestate.com/activeperl/downloads/

Note:
Install the Activeperl first before you install the SDK.

2. Install the carbide.c++ IDE from the availble from the Link

3. Install the latest SDK availble from the Link

And its done and start developing your applications.:)

Please let me know if any one has trouble in setting up the environment and also share your ideas if you have to overcome any problem you faced.
