Nokia Pushes Symbian^4 UI to Symbian Foundation
As the Symbian Foundation moves forward with its work on the Symbian base code, Nokia has offered up several concepts on how it thinks the user interface might look. It provided several different screen shots of the home screen, as well as some insight as to how the Contacts, Music, Photos and Applications might look. The Symbian Foundation will take Nokia's contributions under advisement, which are public for all to see and comment on. Based on the screen shots, they show what appears to be an evolved version of S60 5th Edition.
