Symbian partners with Dolby


Audio and surround sound specialist Dolby has joined Symbian’s Platinum Partner Program after the launch of Dolby Mobile for Symbian.

It enables vibrant surround sound from various types of mobile entertainment content, including music, movies, television and games, for Symbian smartphone users.

Dolby Mobile offers Symbian licensees the ability to differentiate their multimedia products by offering what it describes as a more immersive audio experience on mobile devices.

The first mobile phones featuring Dolby Mobile technology are already available in Japan.

Symbian vice president and general manager of North American operations Jerry Panagrossi said: “Dolby Mobile enables handset manufacturers, operators and developers to deliver rich audio to handsets, applications and content services, offering consumers enhanced audio quality on their mobile phones.

“We look forward to the further uptake of Dolby’s audio solutions to the ever-growing Symbian ecosystem.”
