Nokia submits Symbian^4 UI proposal


Nokia posted the Symbian^4 UI proposal today and is actually seeking feedback from the Symbian open community. The document highlights the new UI changes (they look similar to what we saw last month) and even goes on to compare some of its element and features with competing platforms like Android and the iPhone. The other important point is that this new UI framework is build in Qt, replacing the current S60 Avkon UI framework. This is IMO a step in the right direction and shows that Symbian is really “open” unlike Android. you can check the whole document (pdf) here.
