Please be more clear on what specific apps are you talking about.
But, symbian apps won't work on non-symbian phones and java apps won't work on phones which don't have java. Majority of apps today are of either of these two types.


java apps would work on symbian [ ie sony apps would work on nokia]

but symbian apps wont work on java [nokia apps wont work on sony]

so in short

yes, absolutely!

outlaw said:

nokia apps wont work on sony.

absolutely incorrect! nokia has a large number of non-symbian but java and non-java based phones! so this statement is not true!

he's just asking about application compatibility!


older symbian apps (prior to v9) don't work on the newer os. the apps for the new version need to be signed.

so in short, barring symbian apps, all java apps will work on any phone supporting java (including phones based on symbian os)


Java enabled Sony Ericsson phones cannot run Symbian applications.

Also sony has symbian phones. Seen phones from P series? Then there's M600i and W950i. So, your Nokia rulez theory goes down the drain?


Yep! Sony Ericsson also has Symbian phones like P800/P900/P910/P990.
These are also Java compatible.
Nokia Rulez is a thing of past.



i do know that nokia has got NON symbian phones
but nokia emphasises on the 6 series phones and all of them are symbian
[not sure about 6633 though]

so i was talking about java compatibility of nokia's 6 series symbian phones

and about p series by sony
sony's just got a handful of symbian phones so its not worth mentioning
and there arent much apps available for sony [UIQ symbian] atleast not much as nokia


[ of course there's linux/windows mobile editon..............]
