Nokia announces Python for Series 60

Nokia announced the availability of the Python programming language for its Series 60 platform. This allows programmers to use features of the Symbian GUI and use certain features of the phone such as Bluetooth.
J2ME developers have been waiting for such features for a long time, and early adopters are enthusiastic.

Nokia sees it more as a testbed. "It is well suited to the development of prototypes or for building proof of concept applications with a simple and consistent language," we learn from the developer page. Of course with features such as thread support and shared libraries, Python can be used to build industrial-strength applications too.
