Symbian SDKs


Recommended Posts


The all-in-one Symbian, S60 platform, and S60 device SDKs enable the development of applications using Qt, C++, Java™ technology, and web technology. The SDKs include all the key resources needed for applications development, such as documentation, API reference, examples, and an emulator. An IDE is not included.


With the exception of the Nokia N97 SDK, these SDKs install ActiveState ActivePerl; which is required to build applications with the abld tool in all Symbian and S60 SDKs. If you wish to use the Nokia N97 SDK, install any of the other SDKs prior to installing the Nokia N97 SDK. You can also locate the ActivePerl installer in ..\epoc32\tools\distrib\ActivePerl- of an installed copy of the Symbain^3 SDK.
