after, 23 Oct 2008Sony Ericsson kill UIQ , Sony will leave Ericsson If sony will leave ericsson, then sony will be doomed and ericsson will be wiped out on the mobile map. Samsung and LG have already developed their own non smart interfaces both for touch screens and and non touch screen phone in the simpliest form and they are not far behind. In fact both samsung and lg are making great strides in mobile market. So Sony and Ericsson must rely for each other.
so the conlusion is that, do not use symbian or any smart operating sytem which you do not really needed or understand how to operate,just because it can easily customize the phone, unless you are a software geek or you are a business person. The bottom line is just pick the simplest phone which suites your need. I mean, if you are a multimedia person then use a simpleist multimedia phone. There are lots of there in the market.
Oh! Fall of the most advanced mobile os. It was really wonderful using UIQ from so many years. S60 is nowhere compared to the UIQ.
Well, I saw this a loooong time ago. It just simply wasn't working and yet SE stuck with it for so damn long. Are you sure they actually hired the right people?
That said, the Symbian OS, though extremely popular, is not much of an improvement over the UIQ. It too has been somewhat dead in the water for a while. That's until the introduction of the touch version recently.
Again, that said, Nokia and Symbian is quite late to the game of touch interface. Samsung and LG have more or less a mature touch base OS that's easy to use. And need I mention Apple's?
HAHAHAHA Long Live WinMo!!!! wooohoooo!
Thats why I always end up selling my p800, p900, p910, and p990 a month after buying it cuz UIQ sucks! Going back to WinMo was a relief cuz its much more useful than UIQ.
as for the S60? its only for dumb people ^_^ dumb people like dumb OS, it hurts their mind to think too much. nevermind the bugs and errors from time to time. ha ha
at last..a good news. there wasn't no such reason to carry this unpopular user unfriendly OS so long. can you imagine how the sales would be if there was S60 in SE-K800/K850? we all know why people love s60...
Sony is leaving uiq3, but uiq3 phone already got the value for its money, not only that, a lot of modders are still doing what sony only wish they could have done to attract consumers. Its just a case of bad marketing. At any case, it just means that there would be no UIQ3 for sony anymore. but definitely not death to uiq3.
Windows Mobile . . . here we come.
must quickly sell my M600i & P1i & change to Nokia Symbian. bye2 Sony Ericsson Smartphone R.I.P
now se fANS blame nokia
SONY ERICSSON are such a FAILURE at market
while, i also hope NOKIA won't out a phone such as P1.,
cause the phone gonna disappear very soon!! with the platform!! hahaha
appriciate with SYMBIAN S60, until now, nokia almost use s60 for 6 years
and no bad news goes to s60 but good news come along !!
maybe Digia and Opera will closed down hahahaha UIQ?? hahaha
create more UIQ software !! oaf company!!
UIQ is so dead, I HA, 22 Oct 2008I'm just glad its over! I can't stand it! Its the WROST OS ever created. I had it with Noki... moreYou just WORTE the WROST comment ever on this forym. Epic typing fail! :D
Whereas it may be fun to slag off UIQ as much as possible, remember that lots of people have lost their jobs over this.
Even they turned to WM there is no light for them.
WM never give a great quality of camera or music, unlike symbian.
WM good for use as business but not good in term of entertainment, it can,t replace each other.
To someone who think this is the good move for SE, YOU ARE INCREDIBLE WORNG.
Today SE lack overload of entertainment features that came with smartphone.
SE made mistakes and now they blame the UIQ (and the operators) for their own failures.
still, canceling their UIQ phones would do no good. the facts show us that their market share keep going down and down, and in the near future there might be no more SE-branded phones.
SAD News for me because i was hardcore SE UIQ Fan
P800- Revolution in phones .. (all Nokia = 1 Software, Except Communicator)
P900- Major Improvement in Revolution
P910- Major Changes in Software
P990- Biggest Mistake by SE... but smaller than Nokia's as they have also shifted its S90 Communicator to S60.... like i said "all Nokia = 1 Software"
P1i- Best Business Phone .... Use it to Blv it (i have 2 P1i, just in case market dun provide me betta option .. so i can change my P1i with and only P1i)
guys SE not clearly market leaders in Mobile but they rule and iam sure that with UIQ declaring dead ... they have sum other plans ... maybe cuming up with different OS better than YUK WinMo and more Yukiest S60 (Amen)
With such incompetence and betrayal to it's loyal customers, no wonder SE's profit plumment, and the excuse given is that market didn't want smartphones.
They simply don't understand that smartphone users are demanding users, so if they chose to betray the early adopters of UIQ, they deserve the bad marketing result from it. Winning new customers takes 8 times resources than keeping loyal one .. they chose the first.
