As promised, Nokia has now reaffirmed us through an international mobile internet conference in Beijing, that Symbian will evolve and get more user friendly.We have seen earlier how Nokia said Symbian updates would be made available to all the devices ( Symbian^3 and upward ). Have a look at the slide they presented :

They have promised :

  • 50 new features in an update during January 2011(Includes new HTML 5 browser, split qwerty keyboard,reworked homescreen mechanics)
  • Dual core(1 Ghz) phones with extra Graphics memory( wondering what that extra’s gonna be )
  • True Zoom cameras ( optical zoom like N93 or the lossless digital zoom like on the N8 ? hmmm,a point to ponder )
  • Easier software updates ( will it include ovi app updates too ? ) and an updatable Browser.
  • Overall new Zippier UI based on Qt which might be unified with the likes of Meego ( *crosses fingers* )

And in lesser news, like i already reported, E7 is now officially being postponed to early 2011. Seriously Nokia ? Hasn’t the N8 taught you a lesson or two about announcement and shipping delays ?

Anyway,lets hope they have delayed it for the greater good.
