Thoughts on S60

reflections on the most popular mobile operating system worldwide

New S60 Touch Demo from MWC

Engadget Mobile is of the opinion that S60 Touch isn’t as impressive as some other touch screen platforms, saying that it looks exactly like S60 as we all know it, but now you can touch it.

What did you expect?

All things considered, that’s exactly what I’ve been looking for; a nice big screen for plenty of finger gestures and watching videos, familiar UI with a couple added tweaks for the touch experience, backwards compatibility with standard S60v3 applications, and all of the open features I would expect from S60. The operating system is still the second easiest to use in the world (next to the fool-proof iPhone), so adding the element of touch to it shouldn’t be anything too dramatic at all. It will change the experience while keeping S60 familiar.

As a side note, while this looks great and all, Nokia still isn’t off the hook for not having a working demo at Mobile World Congress.
