What is "S40"?

S40 is the platform that Nokia runs on its feature phone handset models. Unlike S60, it does not run on top of the Symbian OS, but rather runs on a fully proprietary system. Formerly known as Series 40, the system generally only allows the user to install Java based applications instead of the native applications that can be installed by users of S60 devices.

Also known as: "Series 40"
