Since publication of Symbian OS C++ for Mobile Phones Vol 1, Symbian’s software engineers have considerably extended the scope and functionality of Symbian OS. Symbian OS C++ for Mobile Phones Vol 2 is your chance to boost your understanding of the advanced features in Symbian OS. This book builds on the foundations of its predecessor, covering some of the pivotal features of Symbian OS in more detail, and describes key new software features – such as the new Multimedia Framework – which are now appearing in the latest phones.
Symbian OS C++ for Mobile Phones Vol 2 describes the interaction between Symbian OS and applications, broadly following the application lifecycle. At each stage – for example, on application startup – it describes what actions take place in the operating system, what it does for the application and what it expects the application to do. The accompanying CD Rom gives you an opportunity to get to grips with Symbian OS v7.0s yourself, using an exclusive version of the newly-released TechView SDK.
