Does Series 60 support Touchscreen?
So... does it? (see title)
PS Rich, Symbian is not in the spell checker. 🙂
SE P800, and the Palm Tungsten, and Kryocer 7135, they are both palm based.
My next phone will probably be a 3650 or 3660 so I'll get to check out Series 60 first hand.
A PDA Phone has a touchscreen and is designed for people who would normally have a PDA, but don't want to carry two devices.
A smartphone is more like a regular phone: no touchscreen, regular keypad, durable enough to just throw in your pocket, etc. But it has a powerful OS for things like video recording and playback, MP3s, serious gaming, etc.
Or am I wrong about all this?
Series 60 does have Symbian "under the hood", but Series 60 is not the same thing as Symbian. UIQ is also driven by Symbian, and is pen-based. (UIQ is the platform used by the Sony Ericsson P800 and Motorola A920.)
The same thing is going on in the Windows camp. Windows CE 4.2 is the underlying OS for the 2003 version of both Pocket PC and MS Smartphone (both of which now bear the "Windows Mobile" moniker). One is pen-based and one is not.
So both Windows CE and Symbian are "underlying" OSes, not the finished product you see and use.
...and both can (and are) used to power pen-based platforms as well as non-pen platforms.
