There's always been free development tools for Symbian. There's no requirement to pay any money to develop or release software on Symbian devices.

As far as mobile phones go, there are issues with them being completely open source. Manufacturers have to ensure that the devices will not breach their RF licensing terms. Thus parts will remain closed source in order to meet the regulations.
