Nokia Series 60 fans have been talking about this for a while, and now it finally seems to be here. Nokia is now offering an implementation of the Python programming language for Series 60 devices. But only to their Forum Nokia PRO members.

According to the newsletter where the announcement was made:

Python for Series 60 "...supports all native Series 60 user interface elements; access to the file system; sockets; and Bluetooth connectivity. It is also a native Symbian application, so Python scripts can be installed at the top level of the application grid in Series 60 mobile phones."

Hopefully Nokia will see fit to offer this to the masses in the near future, as it will make for an easy way for entry-level programmers to start to writing applications for their Series 60 devices.
