since psion reports symbian losses on a 'look-through' basis, relative to its ca. 30% stake, presumably it will do the same with earnings

This is likely, but not a certainty. Partnership law permits allocations of profit and loss in percentages different than that of an ownership interest. Thus, a partnership agreement could provide that a partner who contributed 20% of the partnership assets could be entitled to 50% of the losses and 30% of the gains, for example.

I would suggest a call to Psion investor relations if you wanted to know for sure. They might tell you what the revenue sharing arrangement for EPOC was.
