Symbian today issued 50m worth of shares in a deal which allays shareholder concerns that it was turning into a Nokia puppet.

As anticipated, the smart phone operating system supplier today revealed that shareholders Panasonic, Siemens and Sony Ericsson had exercised their right to buy a portion of Psion's 31.1 per cent stake, which the Symbian founder had put up for sale in February. Psion had announced its intention to sell the lot to Nokia.
