Maybe it's the lack of a banging soundtrack
, but we're finding ourselves somewhat underwhelmed by these first video appearances by the highly anticipated
Symbian^4 user interface. What we're shown is a now familiar layout for touchscreen devices, with a trio of home screens that can be customized with widgets and live information trinkets such as a clock and a weather app. It is, as promised
, very touch-centric, but it is by no means revolutionary. Both videos are titled as mere "first glimpse" offerings, however, so the eternal optimist in us likes to believe that there'll be plenty more
to get excited about as we move closer to that early 2011 launch. See them after the break and let us know what you think.
