STMicroelectronics and Nokia have expanded their cooperation into the area of Series 60 product creation. STMicro's Nomadik family of multimedia application processors for 3G mobile devices have been adapted and optimized to support the Nokia Series 60 Platform, enabling faster handset development for Series 60 licensees.

The Nomadik open multimedia platform enables portable terminals, like mobile phones and PDAs, to play music, take pictures, record video, and host two-way video communications in real time. Nomadik chips deliver 30-frames-per-second video images.

The Series 60 Platform, built on the Symbian OS, is a smartphone platform. It is licensed by mobile phone manufacturers LG Electronics, Lenovo, Nokia, Panasonic, Samsung, Sendo, and Siemens. Support for the large color screen, easy-to-use interface, and extensive suite of applications make this software platform suitable for latest mobile services, such as rich content downloading and MMS.
