Nokia has completed its previously announced acquisition of Symbian, which controls the world's most popular mobile operating system.

Nokia was already the leading light in Symbian OS development as the major shareholder, and with complete control of the company it intends to push Symbian as an open-source platform.

The establishment of the new Symbian Foundation has the backing of AT&T, LG Electronics, Motorola, NTT DOCOMO, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, ST-NXP Wireless, Texas Instruments and Vodafone.

All Symbian employees are to become Nokia employees on 1 February 2009, said Nokia.
