Linux for Series60 Mobile Phones

Jul 14, 2009

Because Lukas Hetzenecker couldn't find a Linux alternative to Nokia's PC suite, he proceeded to write his own with Python and Qt4. The result is now available in version 0.3.

Series60-Remote is an application for Linux and Windows XP that manages Nokia mobile phones with the S60 operating system. The 10,000-line source code provides the following features:

  • Sending and receiving SMS messages
  • IMs to multiple contacts
  • Message history browser
  • Message notification
  • Contact browser
  • Device information
  • First run wizard
  • Comprehensive settings dialog
  • Tray icon to hide the main window
  • English and German language support

For the next version 0.4, Hetzenecker plans complete contact and directory management and caller information. Download the Series60-Remote software from the project homepage.
