Earlier last week Nokia announced its forecast for 2010 with a pretty cool demo of what the new Symbian UI could look like. Symbian has struggled to compete against rival operating systems like OS X iPhone and Android, and during the Nokia Capital Markets Day event, Nokia concluded that Symbian was not the problem, it’s the UI that needs some TLC. Check out the video demo from the presentation after the break along with some more screenshots.
New Symbian OS
The new Symbian OS will bring multi-touch input technologies on capacitive displays, an improved Internet browsing experience, and the entire UI will be 3 times faster than the current high end Symbian devices. Scrolling will also improve drastically, from a mere 15fps we have today, to a staggering 60fps, and the new graphics will focus on being more responsive. Another major qualm that Nokia is planning on tackling is the shear amount of key taps and prompts a user must acknowledge in order to do a simple task, and will remove more than 350 user prompts in order to speed things up.Tags | Breaking News, Demo, Images, Press Release, S60, S60 5th Edition, Symbian, Touch UI, Video
