Nokia’s MeeGo Will Bet on Differences to iOS and Android

One of the most interesting talks today at LeWeb, Paris, came from Marko Ahtisaari, senior vice president of design at Nokia.

Mr. Ahtisaari identified two “dominant design candidates” for mobile phones — the Apple iOS look with screens of apps and a physical home key, and a second model shared between Symbian and Andriod that sees multiple home screens and — depending on the phone model — lots more keys. The iOS was, he said, “beautifully elegant,” simple to learn, and “fantastically constrained.” The second model, which is the fastest growing, he said, was simple and organic, and built by user over time.”These two patterns are both very interesting, but it’s hard to believe that this is where smartphone evolution ends,” he said.To read this blog posting in the Wall Street Journal in full, see:
