The Symbian Foundation has released a Web application development toolkit for the open-source Symbian 3 mobile platform.

According to a Thursday statement from the foundation, anyone who can create a Web page can create an app for Symbian 3 (marketed as Symbian^3) , as coders only need standard development tools including HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

"These Symbian Web application development tools provide an ideal entry point for Web developers targeting the vast, new development opportunities offered by the Symbian^3 platform and the wider mobile marketplace, where compelling applications are proving their ability to fuel communities," Symbian Foundation chief Lee Williams said in the statement.
