Series 80 (software platform)

The Series 80 (formerly Crystal) was a short-lived mobile software platform for enterprise and professional level smartphones made by Nokia, introduced in 2000. It uses the Symbian OS. Common physical properties to this Symbian OS user interface type is a screen resolution of 640×200 pixels and a full QWERTY keyboard.

The Nokia 9500 Communicator from 2004 uses a different platform, Series 90, yet it's disguised to look like Series 80.

Nokia does not use the Series 80 platform in its latest Communicator, the Nokia E90. Series 80 used the large size of the Communicator screens to best effect, but needed separate development for a relatively small market. The operating system on the E90 is closely related to that used on phones with smaller screens, and does not take full advantage of the large screen.
