However, thanks to the Symbian Smartphone Show everything is quite clear now and it seems that Sony Ericsson has finally and officially confirmed that UIQ platform is dead! Sony Ericsson's Patr... .. .
btw, this is nothing that was not expected...since the symbian foundation news, this was meant to happen
anyway...UIQ is not dead has a platform...it will be on 1 year/2 years...software is still being made, phones are still being manufactured and sold
anyway, i should move to SF/s60 v5 too, next year, first maybe to a 5800, then to whatever SE will make - if they use their ex-UIQ enginneers to make an UI more with UIQ touches, and different from Nokia?s
Nice 2 C U here, hope you?ll be around more often once when the foundation gets its first devices.
Well I mostly agree with U, this is not surprising news, just an official confirmation as I said in the article.
Anyway, I think you should switch to 5th ed device to learn how to get the most from the S60 platform while we are waiting for the first Foundation OS which will be based on the S60 platform extended with the best solutions from UIQ and MOPA platform. Tube looks like the pretty good solution especially considering its price and you?ll be able to easier switch to S60 platform because 5th ed is touch optimized as well.
