New Symbian^4 concept screenshots surface up

15 January, 2010
Three Symbian^4 UI mockups found their way to the surface. As compared to previous leaks, now there are semi-transparent menu overlays and richer variety of sample homescreen widget. But the pictures show...

Well it's a good thing that phone makers are now really working their A** off to become competitive and win the hearts of market. With these recent efforts from Symbian and other emerging OS, I guess credit should be given to Apple, because it agitated the entire phone market. Now everybody's at full-throttle to keep up with the rest of competitors. As for the case of Symbian, its been quite a long time and I don't think it would be easy to dump the 'old dog'. millions of people around the world are using fones running on symbian, they've been comfortable with it, so even if there are a bunch new os out there, it's gonna be close to impossible to convert every symbian user to another.. Nice work symbian. At least you know you need to do something to keep your loyal users..

therock, 16 Jan 2010iphone users and nokia/ symbian haters get lost. Symbian OS i... more"Symbian has more freedom than any other OS."

orly?
Can you play flash video content on Symbian?
Does it support regular .zip and .cab compressed files natively?
Does Symbian synchronise files, contacts, and emails with windows computers without the need of manually launching and running third- party software every time you want to do something?

symbian is a good BASIC OS, but when it comes to the more advanced features you can see smartphones using, Symbian is simply not that good. I a happy to use symbian s40 in a phone that doesn't try to be more than a mobile phone. s60 is ok for a feature phone, but lacks the stability required to run a touchscreen smartphone.

Vodafone AU has their own Nokia N97 support forum set up specifically to assist the people plagued by problems. Another N95 situation

  • Hello

I am not sure of this new concept.....I am using Iphone 3GS and Nokia 97...one big problem i found in Nokia is that....once u install afew software, the phone is getting slow and start to hang so easily...not the matter of the look of the operating system...It is just about the performance...I found Nokia is easy to get freeze and stuck...Iphone seem to handle very good...I install almost 100 softwares and put alot of movie...the phone still fast and work as normal...no freeze..no stuck...32GS of iphone, i have been using around 24GB already...still working fine...32GB of Nokia, i have been using only 2GB..it start to slow down the phone.......well that what i have found in Nokia N97...Hope the next nokia generation..should focus more on performance...

Symbian was NEVER Open Source !!! Open Source is when even you , if you would want, you would be able to make a small application for it !!! Can you ? NO, becouse you need some development kit (that is NOT FREE) and you need to sign every shitty application before installing it. On the other hand Android is OPEN SOURCE: You have the FREE development kit WITH AN EMULATOR to test first your applications on PC , also, no shitty signing process needed.

Also Android OS's interface (even without Sense UI) is much better than any S50v5 .


AND there are around 7 devices with S60v5 .... Count the Android devices (Only HTC have already 5 devices including NEXUS ONE)


And i don't understand one thing: What will happen with 5800 when S^2 , S^3 and S^4 will come ? do tou think Nokia will give it an update ... LOL dreams, the 369 Processor is outdated and if NOW have lag even in menu, Don't expect to see S^4 on it (same goes for N97 and the other phones). I am still watiting for menu transitions and more animations for my N82 (N95 , N95 8GB, N82 and E71 were the best phones made by Nokia, not the ones that are made now)...


Aaa, did I mencioned thandroid is supported by Google ? Every man with at least half of brain knows how powerfull is Google

Nokijus, 16 Jan 2010Look at your (F**) Google/Android sales first week. Your Android... moreThink before you talk. The iPhone only came into the game three years ago or so and are selling like mad having only launched 3 phones by the company (not hundreds)! Secondly, if Symbian is so good why is the whole mobile industry trying to imitate the iPhone and its user experience? Who cares about 100s of functions? A few geeks in a lab? What the masses want is a good user experience!

If Apple was in the phone game as long as Nokia I think they'd be well ahead of the Nokia-Symbian combo.

Nokia and symbian are actually very good - but please don't make baseless fan boy comments - please provide quality.

maybe can be uddated from s60 v5, be a big update, but nokia for monster phones use MAEMO a Linux OS, running firefox as web-browser.
