Nokia tease with Symbian UI improvements coming in 2010

Symbian S60 logoYesterday Nokia announced their 2010 year plans for major renewal of the aging Symbian user interface and pushing the first Maemo 6 device. But the good news didn't end there, since the podcast published actually demoed some of the UI changes.

Next year the Symbian S60 promises to make better use of the capacitive touchscreen technology, bringing native multi-touch capabilities. The mobile OS will take full advantage of the new capabilities, reducing the number of taps needed for some common actions dramatically - reaching favorite music or video, creating and accessing emails accounts, etc).

The Symbian OS will dump more than 350 annoying prompts, which frustrate many users. Even more, Nokia will upgrade from the mediocre 15fps graphics when scrolling to the impressive 60 fps. The web browser will also receive its portion of improvements, benefiting experience, user-friendliness and performance.

Well, it was about time, if not a bit too late. Still we appreciate the good intentions and the fact that Nokia finally understood that the Symbian OS is not the problem, but its outdated user interface. We are now more eager than ever to see more details about the new Symbian face. Until that happens here goes the podcast, allowing you a peek into the future to make the waiting more bearable.
