Demo videos of Symbian^4 make you wonder…3
… Which brings us to the question – what is taking these guys so long to release an OS that simple? We mean, look at Android and bada – these already look more contemporary than what we see in Symbian^4. Sure, this is still a work in progress no doubt, but wouldn’t it be better if they post some videos once they actually have something that’s worth watching at? We honestly hope that the so called Symbian Foundation or whatever it is will stop playing around and finally come up with a decent product. In a way, they can learn from Microsoft. Windows Mobile was considered dead, and Microsoft had no problem leaving it behind and going for something completely new with WP7S. Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be the case with Nokia. And things get even worse when you know that the first handsets using Symbian^4 are expected to ship in the first half of 2011.
