Nokia may be updating Symbian's UI for fall

Symbian-web-server-2 Even though Nokia promises to start rolling out Windows Phone 7 phones at a rapid rate, the company is still caring a lot about its aging operating system, Symbian.

How do they care?

What you see to your left is an example of the aging UI. Compared to the modern interfaces of operating systems like iOS and Android, it just looks unintuitive and non-user friendly. Most everyone knows this, and so does Nokia. And they wanted people to know that they know. So Marc Driesson, a product manager for Nokia, recently discussed the updates. 

It came as a shock to a lot of people, including me. I don't see how pouring additional R&D money into Symbian makes any sense, especially since the majority of Nokia's Symbian developers up and left after the announcement that Windows Phone 7 would be Nokia's operating system of choice.

One thought on “Nokia may be updating Symbian's UI for fall

  • Hmm, why did you post a picture of S60v3? The current version is Symbian^3 which looks nothing like this. Also, as an owner of two Android phones and one Symbian phone, I can’t understand how you can say it is any better. It may look flashy, but isn’t intuitive at all. The UI is a confusing mess.

    And who said the majority of developers has already left?

    Please I like Pocketables, but this is a very poor post.
