UIQ = User Interface Quartz

My understanding is that Symbian is the underlying OS while UIQ, Series 60/70/90 are the UI on top. UIQ apps won't run on any of the Nokia UIs and vice versa. Not sure between the Nokia ones.

They have source converters though I believe that would recompile code for one platform into the other but these are rumours to me.
