Sony Ericsson buys UIQ Technology AB

November 8, 2006
London, UK – November 7, 2006 – Sony Ericsson today announced it has reached agreement in principle for acquiring the Swedish software company UIQ Technology AB, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Symbian Ltd. UIQ Technology, which uses Symbian OS™, licenses the UIQ user interface and application development platform to mobile phone vendors worldwide.
UIQ is one of, if not, the main user interface for higher end Symbian operating systems. This now makes UIQ and in some ways Symbian, a competitor of other device manufacturers. It will be interesting to see what if any effect this has on Symbian’s market share moving forward.
