Vikrant KapoorJOHANNESBURG, South Africa and MELBOURNE, Australia – PhoneReport is introducing its daily software correspondent for the S60 platform, Vikrant Kapoor. Due to the increase in need and awareness of software such as apps, games, and themes, proper attention should be given to this sector of the market.

Kapoor, 21, is originally from India, but is currently living in Melbourne, Australia. The software expert is currently a customer service officer at Anz.

Although PhoneReport does publish weekly reviews of S60 and iPhone software, a daily feed of these articles will generate better understanding and promotion of what developers work at extensively, to improve the offerings of manufacturers, and also to expand the uses of smartphones through the variety of software available for the S60 platform.

The S60 software platform runs on the Symbian operating system, which was acquired by Nokia and donated to the open source community. The openness of the platform will mean that third-party software can further be developed, enabling users to fully customize and use their smartphones to the maximum.

Kapoor believes that in the market today “too few companies are bringing about major innovations that would replicate the success of the iPhone”, but “the next few years are going to be key as the make or break time”. Indeed, the software market was revolutionized by the sleek user interface and consequent software experience that the iPhone brought, and this is the path that other operating system developers should follow in order to achieve the iPhone’s success, or to overtake it.
