Python S60 programming

If you have a  Nokia S60 series phone and you are curious about Python programming in a PyS60 compatible Nokia mobile phone, you can install python in your phone.

You could make it easier to code by either using a text editor such as “Ped” for pyS60 in your S60 phone or just write your scripts in a PC and transfer it later to your mobile phone.

Before downloading the PyS60 for your nokia mobile phone, You will have to find out exactly which Nokia S60 phone you have if its a 1st, 2nd or even 3rd Series model, then download the corresponding feature packs for your mobile phone. I list some of the pyS60 nokia phone series below, (sorce of info the internet).

I have installed Nokia PyS60 in my Nokia N70, which the N70 is as I listed below, compatible with the category of Nokia S60 series 2nd edition, FP3. and I downloaded and installed Ped text editor into my phone as well.
You can download python for S60 phones from the below link:

        Yes u can develop apps for ur phone from PC, and u can write scripts from ur phone if u have a text editor like “ped”, but u will not be able to make a .sis file from phone that u can do only with PC, keep reading the blog i’ll update it, and i’ll provide info abt it asap. there is a tool called py2sis that can convert python programs to to .sis on your computer. And sorry the list i have provided is not complete, its just a list that i got from net.

    1. You can create sis file via your phone.Pls note that .sis is looks like a .zip the app files are compressed its extention is .Sis the method is diffrent from zip
      link apper,py2sis are using to create sis in s60
