Symbian Limited announced yesterday that the company has shipped over 100m Symbian powered smartphones. The phones are in use on over 250 carriers and have been on sale since the Ericsson R380 launched in 2000. Sales have picked up recently with 13m in the third quarter of 2006 alone (up 52% from a year ago).

The vast majority of Symbian devices are from Nokia, but many manufactures have shipped Symbian equipped phones. The list includes Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, BenQ and Siemens.
