KDE "The KDE community today announces the start of the Calligra Suite project, a continuation of the KOffice project. The new name reflects the wider value of the KOffice technology platform beyond just desktop office applications. With a new name for the Suite and new names for the productivity applications, the Calligra community welcomes a new stage in the development of free productivity and creativity applications for desktop and mobile devices."

I track smartphone market share rather extensively, and I've never seen Symbian omitted from the research. Not one single time.

Nor should it be. Symbian runs native applications, written to the legacy API or to the QT framework. It has a successful app store, Ovi, with over 3 million downloads a day. It syncs to a PC via USB or over the radio network, and supports wifi and web browsing and GPS and all of that other smartphone goodness, just with a rather dated (but recently UPdate) UI.

And it *already* runs office suites, for example, http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/reviews/item/OfficeSuite_S60.php.

I've never owned or used a Symbian phone, but claiming that only iOS and Android constitute smartphones is rather like claiming that only BMW and Lexus constitute luxury sports cars.
