Nokia has completed its acquisition of Symbian Limited.

All conditions to Nokia’s offer to acquire Symbian Limited have been satisfied and it has received valid acceptance of greater than 99.9 percent of the total Symbian shares that Nokia did not already own.

Symbian is the company behind the Symbian OS which can be partnered with user interfaces such as Nokia’s S60 or UIQ from UIQ Technology (a joint venture between Motorola and Sony Ericsson).

Nokia plans to contribute the Symbian and S60 software to the non-profit Symbian Foundation which has been set up to offer the Symbian Foundation platform to members under a royalty-free license.
