Today, Layar is very excited to announce that after much development and testing, the Layar Reality Browser is now available on the Symbian platform. This has been a long-awaited and highly anticipated release for Layar, but today we are proud to introduce a truly terrific augmented reality experience for Symbian devices.
Owners of S60 and Symbian^3 devices with GPS, front-facing camera, compass and accelerometer (see list of supported devices below) can now rediscover the world around them using Layar’s augmented reality browser.
“Augmented reality is changing the way people view the world,” said Raimo Van Der Klein, CEO and co-founder of Layar. “Layar’s goal is to bring the AR experience into people’s every day lives and with this offering we are able to provide Nokia users with that rich digital experience on their mobile phones.”
We are proud to help bring augmented reality to masses, and with Nokia and Symbian - which remain juggernauts in the mobile industry with millions of users and devices in the market - we are significantly closer to that goal.
Layar for Symbian is available now for download in the Ovi Store, and is compatible with these devices:
- Symbian^3 - Nokia N8, Nokia C7, Nokia C6-01, Nokia E7
- S60 - Nokia N97, Nokia N97-mini
NOTE: It is strongly recommended that you upgrade your device to latest Symbian firmware in order to ensure a smooth augmented reality experience.
