Nokia Offers Glimpse of Symbian Facelift

Barence writes to mention that Nokia is giving users a first glimpse at what promises to be a completely overhauled Symbian user experience this coming year. Nokia’s chief exec blamed the user interface — as opposed to the OS itself — as the root problem. “The company will roll out a completely re-engineered user interface in 2010, aimed at addressing many of the criticisms associated with the OS. ‘We will reduce the clutter and improve the input methods including multi-touch and single tap,’ Kallasvuo told delegates. ‘It should be just two taps to get to your favorite music or videos, rather than eight. We’ll improve browser experience so that it’s a quicker, flash improved, media experience with pinch-to-zoom and so on.’ And, Kallasvuo wasn’t stopping there. Aside from completely redesigning the interface, he also suggested that future Symbian OSes would be much faster.”
