Developers can now have their Qt Symbian (with Nokia Smart Installer for Symbian), Symbian C++, Flash Lite applications, and Symbian Themes signed for free by Nokia.

To get the free signing, developers must only provide some information and follow a few new steps during their application submission to publish to Ovi.

Under the new arrangement, publishers no longer need to pay to get a publisher ID or have their apps signed.

Nokia said this move--essentially removing the ‘public beta’ for Symbian Signing--is part of their efforts to review the initial investment costs associated with obtaining a publisher ID and getting apps signed.
