PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Time. Coming. Long. Put these in the appropriate order, and you'll get my reaction to this news. Nokia has announced that it is planning a major overhaul of the user interface to the Symbian operating system, still the most popular smartphone platform in the world.

RE[2]: It'll be Qt everywhere..

Qt is really a more polished, and simultaneously more modern in all but implementation language, platform than Android though. I am not a fan of Symbian as a platform (very archaic), but if there is anything that gives Nokia a good shot it is getting a modern API set on there. Nokia has always been good at putting together nice hardware at a reasonable price, it is just the software strategy that has been messy.

Buying Trolltech could very well turn out to be the best thing they every did. I am more hopeful about Symbians future than I have been in years and years. I am on Android now, but could very well consider switching back to Symbian if this turns out well.
