Itís been a while since we last heard something on Symbian^4. While ^3 is yet to roll out, its successor already showed its face. The shots are taken from an emulator of the OS, but there's no wow factor yet.
The shots below clearly demonstrate the new homescreen, pop-up menus, widgets, dial pad, etc.
The things we still miss here are some 3D effects or transparency. At this stage we canít simply put Symbian^4 to its current rivals. Still letís donít forget Symbian^4 aims Nokiaís mid-range devices, while MeeGo is intended for the high-end class.
Symbian^4ís development phase is still in the beginning and there is a lot of time until its launch in 2011. We believe Nokia is on the right track here and has all the chances to surprise us in the end.
Symbian never had it right, .. it was laggy in 2003 and they still haven't made much progress on better hardware available.. No more symbian for me, .. loved my n73 while everybody was complaining about it though.. =/
I myself have been using since 2001 & that's almost a decade. And I too see Nokia's future hopelessly dependent on release of its smartphone's I.e N-series I'm right !!!
loooool, i have even mentioned tht i was sarcastic, still these people dont get it....wht the hell is wrong with this world...BTW, thnx 4 the support.
