Siemens i-mode phone launch imminent

21 Feb 2003

German equipment supplier Siemens ICM has said it will introduce an i-mode handset within a few weeks, as it strives to gain the initiative in the war of mobile operating systems. According to Siemens’ director Lothar Pauly, the sector is tending towards favouring the Symbian platform as ‘most industry players do not want Microsoft to become a dominant factor as happened in the PC market’.
