Python on Cell Phones

Two threads down was about Opinions on Python. Well Nokia seems to like it.

===
Python for Series 60 allows developers to execute Python commands and run Python scripts and applications in devices based on Series 60 Platform.

...

Python for Series 60 is capable of running applications that use native resources of Series 60 Platform and Symbian OS. It is well suited to the development of prototypes or for building proof of concept applications with a simple and consistent language. Python for Series 60 is an idea choice for starting to create application for devices based on Series 60 Platform.

Looks like Python is moving up in the world. I have no idea why it's only for prototpes or starting to create applications (maybe Python on Series 60 is still in beta, maybe Python itself takes up too much memory, etc.), but before long, there will be full blown apps for cell phones developed with Python.
