Yes, I already discussed it with Bozo on irc. I have Nokia 9210 for
development that it also Symbian based. The best idea to us, as suggested
by Bozo, is some kind of the hybrid solution.

Currently all code and our focus is on the PC side. It has the
disadvantage of the must of reverse engineering of the whole protocol. If
we can upload our code to the phone it is much better:
 - symbian provides api and libraries to handle communication/file
types/etc from the phone side
 - we can use some well known protocol (obex?) to communicate
 - therefore we avoid the hardest part: decoding the communication
protocol and gnokii side should be fairly easy do be done

This method allows us to be Nokia independent. The solution should work on
all Symbian phones.
