Nokia Taps Apple for Browser Software

At the Nokia Connection 2005 show held in Finland, Nokia announced they are working in conjunction with Apple on a new Series 60 web browser. The Series 60 platform is built on the Symbian operating system and is licensed by Nokia to other mobile phone manufacturers such as LG Electronics, Panasonic, Samsung, Siemens and others.

The new Series 60 web browser is based on the same KHTML open source software that powers the Safari web browser for Apple’s operating systems. So naturally Nokia it only makes sense that Nokia and Apple would work together on this.

“Open source development also enables close cooperation with the industry’s best innovators, such as Apple. Both Apple and Nokia share a commitment to Internet standards and the use of a common code. The unified and compatible browser base will offer a very compelling choice for Web content developers,” said Pertti Korhonen, Chief Technology Officer, Nokia.

Renders of the Apple Watch Ultra 2 and Apple Watch Ultra next to each other.

While the first-generation Apple Watch Ultra was groundbreaking, the latest model is more of an incremental upgrade, with only minor tweaks.

If you own the earlier version of the Apple Watch Ultra, you might be wondering whether it's worth upgrading to the new one. This question will need to address two central issues: 1) whether you plan on utilizing the fresh features and 2) whether or not you mind paying for the somewhat pricey new device.

The Apple Watch Ultra 2 is (almost) exactly what I wanted
A promotional image of the Apple Watch Ultra 2.

The Apple Watch Ultra 2 announcement from Apple's iPhone 15 event needs some thinking about before it makes sense. Why? At first, it looked like a product barely deserving of the name due to a disappointing list of upgrades, the addition of only a few new features, and the fact that it has exactly the same look as last year’s model.

This is all factually correct, but I’m about to explain why it was to be expected — and why it doesn’t matter at all.
