Totally off topic comment, but it's odd that the city of choice for the weather app is Cape Town, all the way down in South Africa.
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2010Do you think a great ui make a phone good? well duh! great ui means awesome user experience. phones could have all features but still deliver the worst user experience because of the lame ui. its not all about features.
That is symbian^4 ??? I guess even the Samsung Star can do all this ... lame ...
Too late! And Eeew! Nokia is so trying hard to copy android. LOL! HAHA Nokia's os is ugly as hell! No wonder they just dropped 5.5% market share! That's HUGE! With Nokia continuing to drop os share and maemo being a fail, nokia is so gonna die soon! ROFL!!
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2010Did you watch the video? An exact copy of Android, right down to the 3 dots down the bottom... moreHow sure r u that this video shows symbian^4 in the works?atleast nokia made benchmark in mobile technology specially in gsm/3g and other mobile fones maker copied and emulate wat nokia had made and made huge amount of royalty fees to nokia patented products..
deep space bar, 28 Feb 2010ok guys you watched the video but did you even think why nokia did that on purpose
BadaOS i... moreDid you watch the video?
An exact copy of Android, right down to the 3 dots down the bottom indicating the homescreen.
The phone even looked like a HTC Magic with the ball replaced by two buttons.
Nokia connecting people...
...to copied ideas!
deep space bar, 27 Feb 2010you know why cause the phone is not bricked by apple that's why and the phone is open source s... moreI agreed with you.they also say that symbian will be dead but it jaz evolving.they r so jealous wat can symbian do..Jealousy is basically one of 7 deadly sin..they have so much bitterness in their lives.but we should understand them nokia topics are the only place where they can out pour their hatred bcoz their phone OSes cant do symbian way.they r deprived on things wat symbian users r savouring..

A widget that goes back and forth and a gallery that makes flickr feels like Minority Report. And by the way, what's the point of apples? Fruits should NOT be following the apples, they should be going past them. It's like saying that if apples grow on trees, watermelons should, too. Finally, I hope Symbian makes it, since I'm a fan of competition. :)
@deepspacebar: That actually makes sense. If they keep the hopes low enough, they may even surprise us... if you (them) got something to show us, do it at once.
If any of you have good ides to make symbian 4 a greatest os, then head over to developer.symbian.org
there is some thread discussing how to improve the new ui!!!
All ideas are welcomed
this video is just a concept video which nokia sent to symbian at 15 Jan 2010
stop judging symbian 4 until it is out at 2011
ok guys you watched the video but did you even think why nokia did that on purpose
BadaOS is coming WINmo7 and the so called new iphoneOS
so why would nokia show everyone their ideas
think people please......think for once
Let's not be too harsh regarding this , it's only a Demo after all. I think not so long ago there was a thing about Symbian taking input from people about how ^4 should look like. So if you have anything constructive to say and have some innovative about the UI then do it.
I think Qt being used is great and will offer lots of possibilities for innovation and customization. Let's not forget that mobile phone operators do customize the UI.
Also correct me if I'm wrong here but Apple didn't really make any innovations since they launched the iPhone either so I dunno about this.
I for one think Symbian is a great mobile OS, better even than Linux even though I'm a fan of Linux. Symbian allows for cheaper smartphones for the masses and with a Qt based UI in ^4 it will be competitive with iPhone , Android and the likes.
wow, 28 Feb 2010Funny how you put 1:30 seconds of a prototype OS out and everyone sandbags you for it.Its 1:30 of nothing special. Should have been 1:30 of something cool.
