 At the Smartphone Summit, held 0n Monday in conjunction with the fall 2007 CTIA show here in San Francisco, Symbian executives   highlighted new ScreenPlay and FreeWay technologies on Monday.

ScreenPlay is a new graphics architecture for Symbian OS.  It enables the use of what Symbian calls "big screen effects" on cell phones. We're talking high-def video content, games and animations.

What's even more vital is that Symbian is convinced ScreenPlay accomplishes this without draining battery life.  Quite literally, that issue has been the ghost in the machine for cellphones running Symbian (and other mobile OS) in the past.

And I know you have to be wondering about FreeWay. Well, that's an IP networking architecture within Symbian OS that enables handsets to be enabled for high-bandwidth applications such as fast music downloads, streaming and oh yes, VoIP.

Fujitsu and Nokia are embracing these technologies. You may see them fully enabled onSymbian OS handsets from these manufacturers sooner rather than later.
