Is this good or bad?

It shook my soul when I read S60 will cease to exist! I happen to like S60!

Well, I suppose it won't be too much longer before I'll know what this new Symbian OS is all about.

I happen to like S60 too. But I think that it needs to evolve and hopefully that is what Symbian^2 will be.

I really don't know what to expect. Seems as though we'll have an idea in the next 5 months. Maybe the N98 will have this new OS. I hope it will support new standards such as USB 3.0, Bluetooth 3.0, and better processors. I think I read something about Nokia using dual-core Intel chips in future handsets.

I'm happy with my N95-3, so I will just be patient and wait to see what this new Symbian OS is all about.

I too am a huge fan of S60. My feeling however is that as long as they don't ruin the homescreen, including its customization, which is the one reason I happen to like S60, then I'm okay with the change. Active Idle is something I can't live without. But if they morph it into widgets like with the N97, then that's fine by me as well. I just hope they don't make it look like Android or iPhone OS. I can't stand their layouts.
