Symbian going FOSS?

Noticed this from an aggregated post in Planet Fedora by Adam Jackson - Symbian Foundation.

The Symbian Foundation will provide, manage and unify the platform for its members. Also, it will commit to moving the platform to open source during the next two years, with the intent to use the Eclipse Public License.


Pressure from Google Android??. Change of heart??. Anyway, its still a good sign for FOSS world :)

Well, Symbian Foundation was bought by Nokia. Nokia was the Symbian Foundation's biggest client. And I believe it is a market strategy for Nokia to release Symbian as FOSS. Android is getting more suspicious with its self-claimed FOSS statement but from what we can see so far, no, it isn't, yet.
