Automatic porting of S60 application to UIQ

I would like to recommend S2U - a free of charge tool for porting S60 application to UIQ. The porting is simple, fast its results are excellent. The porting process is comprised of 3 steps:

STEP 1: Automatic Series 60 Project File Conversion
STEP 2: Building the project in the UIQ environment
STEP 3 (May be required in some cases): Minimal manual original source code adjustments.

The tool is from Peroon R&D Ltd. and can be downloaded from In case any problem occur, Peroon's free of charge support is very efficient.

Does this mean any S60 app will run on UIQ?

Dare we speculate something like TomTom Mobile?

S2U provides implementation of UI-related S60 APIs on UIQ. That means that:
1) application has to be rebuilt on UIQ from its C++ sources
2) non-UI incompatibilities require manual intervention to the C++ code
3) while standard S60 controls will behave as standard UIQ controls, the hard-coded screen coordinates, etc. will not be "translated" automatically, and thus will require manual corrections.
Nevertheless, S2U makes the porting much easier and faster, and - after the porting is done - you will have to maintain only 1 source code for both S60 and UIQ platforms.
n-Gage games? Why not? S2U package even includes a game as an example. It is also a good example how to cope with my note #3 (about screen coords, etc.)
