Is there any chance for porting to Samsung i8910 ?
i8910 has a capacitive screen and 600MHz processor.

phones such as 5800 and n97 are already 'forgotten' by nokia (expecially the 5800 had no major upgrade so far)
and of course the want sell upcoming phones as well..
Regrettably, The current Nokia phones (5800, 5530, & n97) won't be able to support thr new features of the new UI as it involves two important components: 1. Capacitive screen for multi-touch interfacw 2. Improved CPU (ARM Cortex w/ 600 MHz). Current Nokia S60v5 phones have 1. Resistive screens and 2. 300 MHz processor with no dedicated graphics accelerator. Also, economics dictates that Sales is needed to pay for R&D. Sales that cannot be achieved merely by updating current models.
To even hope that the Nokia X6 would be updated to the new OS is probably a far cry.
If you're intent on buying a new Nokia touchscreen phone, better hold on to your wallets and wait for the new models.
Hope the phone is not going to lag as the samsung omnia II
All s60v5 will be having ths ui because satio is s60v5 wil be converted into symbian open source think?
Dam, 06 Dec 2009I didnt knew that, so the major update for the 5800 was only for cpu performance?Yep recoding for screen response and RAM usage
And some slight tweeks
will this be provided as a SW update for current touch phones like the 5800?

Knowing nokia this device probably won't come out until December 2112...
Dam, 06 Dec 2009Seriously Nokia, put some of these upgrades in older s60 phones.
Ive just bought 5530, I feel... moreYou think that's bad nokia still didn't give the 5800 kenetic scrolling and the widget homescreen......and the n97mini is same screensize...like wtf
I'm keeping this as a back up..my 5800 and getting n900 in 2 weeks ?plus buying and extra battery since they all use the same one 1320mah lol i'll go 2 weeks with out charging 3batteries to use XD
Seriously Nokia, put some of these upgrades in older s60 phones.
Ive just bought 5530, I feel its like a waste of money if next year all nokias will have this UI.
Mashy, 06 Dec 2009hmm. E70..?? I have not yet tried that phone. E90's keyboard is like a dream come true. So man... moreI haven't check it out yet since i live in canada we are always late it tech or the first to have it in North America like thd N95 8gb and N86 on provider.but were are getting the Milestone next year
I like the design but Android Os is as bad as OSx Mobil(iphoneOs) cause it's still lacks flash support
Deep space bar, 06 Dec 2009Iphone can't beat E70 at typing it's the perfect keypad.....sersiously
I haven't really touch... morehmm. E70..?? I have not yet tried that phone. E90's keyboard is like a dream come true. So many shortcut keys and big sized keys and the 4inch widescreen display really compliments the wonderful keyboard.
Nokia is not announcing any successor to E90 and E70 aswell.
I also can not wait to get my hands on the N900. Its OS is stunning. But have you tried the Android OS? Is it really good or is it just overly hyped? Im just confused whether to get the N900, Milestone, Xperia X10 or HD2.
Yeah E75 has a good keyboard. It looks very flat, but once you start typing on it, your going to fall for it and just want to keep typing.
Deep space bar, 06 Dec 2009Not much people even use multitouch in general inless it's really important .....an when is th... moreYeah mate you are right. Multi touch is not that practical in web browsing. Double tapping is much better.
Mashy, 06 Dec 2009Yeah mate, your right. Its more around the hype which Apple has created around it.Not much people even use multitouch in general inless it's really important .....an when is that XD
I rather have 1 fingered gesters, saves time and less annoying specially zooming
Even on opera mobile/mini/webkit browser on my 5800 tapping is so much better
Tap twice to zoom ,tap twice to pan out...... DONE
I only applies better to games
Mashy, 06 Dec 2009Thanks for your suggestion regarding Samsung phones (Jet and Omnia II). Actually your right, e... moreIphone can't beat E70 at typing it's the perfect keypad.....sersiously
I haven't really touched the E90's keypad but tje E75 and 5730 and 6730 slide have really responsive keys and really good feedback
I just can't wait to get my n900 :3
Mashy, 06 Dec 2009Thanks for that info. Omnia II looks stunning on paper but thats the problem with Samsung, the... moreIt's a good phone but very very wrong OS on the device WinMo chugs like molasis
And the accelorometer calibration is pretty cool
You put it on a table like a leveler
That's all i like from it and the task manager looks like the n900's which is maemo 5
It's touchWiz that messes up everything on samsung phones
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2009will these updates be available to phones from other companies that are running symbian such a... moreI do not think so. I hope not.
The reason is that now Symbian is an open source and if Symbian had announced this then all members of the symbian foundation would have access to it. But Nokia has announced these improvements, these would be specifically for Nokia. So all other members of the symbian foundation can use the default symbian OS or can make their own UI. That makes sense so all Manufacturers using Symbian OS will have their own touch to the OS, thus differenciating between the manufacturers.
