New Symbian UI stars in a Nokia X7 promo video

It is quite surprising that we are seeing the new Symbian UI already in action, as it was previously thought the update won't come until the fall. Nokia might be farther along with this thing than imagined, so the London event tomorrow all of a sudden got more interesting.
We'll make sure to inform you on any news that get spilled tomorrow about Symbian's new interface and devices. In the meantime, watch some fast browsing (supposed to be three times snappier than now), flexibly sized widgets, and working up that portrait keyboard in the Nokia X7 promo video below.
The browser interface actually looks quite polished, and we are glad that Nokia is delivering on its promise to keep improving Symbian. Now where are those 1GHz+ and dual-core phones promised for this year, Espoo? Oh, and from the looks of it, we are finally getting rid of the tired Nokia Sans font, which has been replaced with the new Nokia Pure creation.
Thank you for the tip, Philip!
I don't think Nokia ever said they were bringing dual-core phones, they said 1GHZ+. anyway a dual-core technology isn't ready for prime time, just check the standby hours on the Androids with dual core... very laughable even 1GHz phones don't even cut it as battery saving that's why Nokia hasn't done that.

But some friends prefet to be able to watch 1080p video on their phone, rather then have longer stand by time. And btw usign Androind in checking anything otyher then OS it self, is not wise. As we all know, android have crapy drivers for all hardware, so it will preform worse then everything else with same spec and eat more juce then everything else.....

I've got the Optimus 2X and am just coming from a three days light usage over the weekend on a charge.. Granted, I turned off 3G and left only EDGE, so the phone doesn't waste battery to try and maintain 3G connection, but you get the idea - never noticed diminished standby times because the phone is dual-core. It goes as long as any other Android device I've owned, except for the Droids, which have really good bat.. life...

Still looks very dated in comparison to its rivals not to mention the functionality is far inferior also. I have a htc desire and a c7 and n8s for work purposes and the symbians are awful in comparison especially in browser terms
