As of yesterday Symbian is now fully open-source. The folks at ZDNet UK had a chance to sit down with the chief of the Symbian Foundation. In it they discussed the difficulties in carrying out the largest code migration in open source history, as well as the future of the Symbian OS.

When asked whether or not he thought that Symbian would make its way to a tablet or netbook, the Foundation's chief executive replied that such a product was “very likely” to launch within the next year.
