Nokia is developing a mobile browser for its Series 60 smartphone
software in cooperation with Apple Computer Inc. , the Finnish
telecoms equipment maker said on Monday.

Nokia said in a statement the new browser will use the same open
source components as Apple's Safari Internet browser. Nokia added the
browser will be available during the first half of 2006 and said it
would continue to cooperate with Apple.

In March, Nokia signed a deal with Apple's competitor, Norway's Opera
Software, to put Opera's mobile Internet software on more Nokia
phones, after having licensed Opera's browser for a total of 11 Nokia
models in recent years.
