Ruby for Symbian OS
released (by Symbian).
Sounds good. Now people can develop apps for mobile phones using Ruby, for a big platform.
Of course, specialized libraries will be needed for the different features on phones as compared to PCs. Symbian is working on a proof of concept module which will include rendering, messaging and persistence. More should follow over time if there's enough momentum. A market of 100 million phones, hopefully, should provide some incentive to people to develop need libraries, etc. for it :-)
