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.

Hey, maybe Nokia is hanging onto Symbian because it's a good little OS that a lot of people use and love! I have it on my Smart-phone and it's extremely solid, simple to use. Perhaps the old adage, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" might apply?

But that's the funny part: they are actually fixing it ;)

Though in my opinion, it's more like beating a dead horse. It's horrendous to program for and it just does not measure up to Maemo. Which would be alright, if they were talking about the low-end versions. But smartphones?

That (programming) is what they are fixing with Qt... I read some comments on Qt 4.6 release from symbian developers and they look positive.
