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.

All three of the companies listed above have had periods when some people thought that they were close to collapse. So although certain Nokia products are not generating the same amount of market interest at the moment, that bears no relation to how future products might perform.

By all accounts the N900 is proving to be a very versatile and capable device, although I'm more interested in the reportedly upcoming capacitive touchscreen version.

I say all this as a current N97 user, which is one of the key examples of where Nokia does get things wrong - it should never have shipped with its original firmware whatsoever.

Is the newer firmware better? What does it improve? Just curious since I haven't heard too many reports on the N97 since the initial wave of disappointed-sounding reviews.
