MOAP (Mobile Oriented Applications Platform) is the software platform for NTT DoCoMo's FOMA service for mobile phones.[1][2]

Because it has a closed user interface, third parties cannot make applications or install applications, unlike UIQ and S60.

Versions[change | change source]

There are two versions of MOAP:[3]

  • MOAP(S) runs on phones that run Symbian OS from some manufacturers, such as Fujitsu, Sony Ericsson Japan, Mitsubishi, Sharp and more. Unlike Series 60 and UIQ, which are other platforms based on Symbian, MOAP(S) is not an open development platform. MOAP(S) is released as open source from Symbian Foundation under the EPL.
  • MOAP(L) is supported by Linux-based phones from Panasonic and NEC. MOAP(L) is also not an open development platform.
