Engadget, reporting on a preview of a new UI for Symbian next year. They’ve got some pretty pictures too.
According to Kai Öistämö in charge of device design, Symbian will next year;
use a new optimized graphic architecture with a focus on graphics and responsiveness, showcased beautifully on a large capacitive screen. Later in the year, a completely new visual architecture re-working of the UI will drastically reduce the complexity throughout and bring fresh appeal. We will execute here.
Note there’s no talk about better integration with Ovi, nothing about hardware. I’m not sure that people trust Nokia this late in the game.
When I see the shipping device from Nokia, I’ll believe it, until then mark me down as a sceptic.
