Symbian UI update awaited this year
There will not be any Symbian^4 descending from Nokia, but we’ll see a few scheduled UI updates moved from the 4th into the 3rd. Concording to Driessen, Nokia is pointing a major UI overhaul in the autumn, an update reported to admit these features:
– a dedicated pull-down status bar up top
– new iconography
– new flexible widgets
– a simplified navigation bar below
– better menus
I really hope they will release some updates for Nokia N8, because my phone is begging for it. High-Def Youtube playback would be great. It’s frustrating that I can only watch youtube videos in 320×240.
Although Nokia HQ didn’t specifically named a date, the autumn timeline does correspond other reports saying that a smaller update for N8 and E7 users could follow this summer.
