is there a version of SDK that works on mac??
Unfortunately there is no Symbian C++ SDK for the Mac, so you can't develop C extension modules or use the Symbian emulator. Note that you don't need the SDK for developing pure Python code, just the SIS package is enough for that.
I 've had poor luck with emulators in Virtual PC.
I'll wait for a Mac SDK.
In the meantime I can develop for Flash on Nokia.
It is indeed a shame that there is no official SDK for OS X, but, as others have said their are alternatives for most of the develpment environments. In terms of straight Python I'm really enjoying using my Mac, there's Python support striaght out of the box in OS X and linking up to the phone is a breeze.
You can use whatever text editor you normally use to write Python scripts (from vi through emacs and TextWrangler), then transfer scripts across to the handset using Bluetooth.
For interactive development under 10.4 try this:
Open up System Preferences, navigate to the Bluetooth Settinsg and choose Sharing.
Choose Add Serial Port Service and create a new RS-232 serial port device called say, BTSerialPort.
Now, as long as your phone is configured and paired with your Mac, just open up Terminal.app and type "screen /dev/tty.BTSerialPort" then run Python on your handset and run the bt_console.py script. Choose to connect to the serial port device you've setup and are monitoring (i.e select your ocmputers name then select BTSerialPort) and voila, interactive Python development in a nice Terminal window.
any one where i can get a copy of python for handset?? i am new to the handset development(just intersting as a studnet) so pleaase point out for me
