Matsumoto said, “Cellular phones featuring the Symbian OS would be easier to distribute throughout the world, and it would be easier to ‘make a differentiation.’ While we do not intended to have all of our products utilize the Symbian OS, we would like to gradually increase the percentage of our high-functionality products featuring the Symbian OS.”
