The long-expected MIUI 6 is finally here! Visually stunning, Stunningly Simple. It's a new chapter for MIUI. And here is a full review for you to get a taste of it.

We believe that it takes more than just good features to create a beautiful design. From orderly workflows, clear hierarchies and fluent responses, we believe that good design exists in every tap, drag and pinch you make. Natural and intuitive, just the way it should be.This is MIUI 6. It's visually stunning, stunningly simple. It's the start of anew chapter.

Had you told me these were shots from some other operating system, I'd have believed you. This is shameless (via Daring Fireball).

As if there is anything original how the iOS looks.

There are similar looking interfaces made for pocket computers that have applications in icon grid that predate iOS almost 10 years.

Some of them also look lot better than the iOS now.

oh please, these were research only, or things that barely made it to market. apple was all over early pocket computers, designing & selling one of the first handheld platforms to a mainstream market in what, 1990?

when apple inc. restricted the newton team and ultimately killed it, many of it's original engineers went onto palm and other smaller handheld projects. apple is all over the DNA of handhelds, way before google existed, way before samsung was in consumer space, and way before OSNews even existed.

Well there's always http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GRiDPad manufactured by Samsung in 1989... also, "Jeff Hawkins went on to use the GRiDPad as a predecessor for his best known-invention, the Palm Pilot."

(and what does it have to do with the existence of OSNews? You seem to have a strange train of thought while defending Apple...)
