Possible Nokia UX for Meego devices

OOOHHHH !!!!! look at what we have very nice indeed. If this is real then OMG !!!!!:-)

Update possible ad showing the new Nokia Meego device

The reason why I am showing this is because it shows the same tool bar at the top that I saw in the video above and Symbian 4 screenshots, so these seem legit.

The future is looking bright for Nokia I guess 🙂

Thanks to R240R and Jim for the heads up !

    I can honestly say that i am surprised and quite excited by this….easily miles above anything else out there at this point in terms of sheer looks and quite likely a rather extensible and powerful os… Hp and google are gna have to bring their A-game! Bring on nokia world

      Agree with you there combines striking UI with simple functionality, I was surprised myself and thought straight away FAKE. But then this was supposed to have been showed off in a questionnaire according to reports and it has the Nokia trade mark logo and “Top Secret” written in the left hand corner so lets hope and see

    That looks damn good. Thank god they decided to go with a Maemo-style look….assuming its real, that is.

      I’m pretty confident that it’s real enough that it was built.
      That is not just a demo image, noone in UI design goes that far just to show a concept. Concepts are generally uninteractive images.
      Whether it actually gets to devices is an entirely different story. I have a sneaking feeling we’ll find out in a few short weeks @ Nokia world.

    This make my day beautiful

    I don’t know if this is real or not. The N97 had some sick looking demos before the final UI was released and you guys know how that turned out. I think with 8 or 9 months before the final release I’m not going to get too excited.

    • Andre
      August 2, 2010 at 8:56 pm

      And the N8 has had piss-poor demos but great real life performance.

    • Jim
      August 2, 2010 at 9:12 pm

      I hope so. I don’t think nokia wants to make the same mistake twice.

    First vid is MeeGo, Image looks like S^4 rather than MeeGo tbh. You can tell by the back arrow, the font, and the shape of the top bar.

    • John Wiegand-forson
      August 2, 2010 at 9:14 pm

      great to see it looking closer to Meego/Maemo though

      • JFH
        August 2, 2010 at 9:21 pm

        indeed

    anyone willing to bet on a common UI style between the two OS’s?
    S^4 and Meego

    • John Wiegand-forson

      Thats what I thought when Nokia revealed their Symbian/Meego strategy makes sense I guess although some modifications like music phones and business phones would be nice though.

      Would make total sense to me. The average user wouldn’t even think about MeeGo or Symbian – it’s just a Nokia. I think that’s what they should be doing. Still then they would have to find a way to differentiate the NSeries from the rest of the S^4 devices…

    Sexy as hell!

    Looks very good, but I kinda didn’t like the blue button at the top menu bar(at 0:28), should be a different colour IMO, I think in Nokia’s fashion, Meego will be fully theme-able?

    I like that S^4 and Meego have more unified system navigation though menu/back, options, close… look the same. It should make switching back and forth and adapting applications for both much easier.

    At 0:39, when they show Ovi Store, IMO, the top and bottom menus should be the same width/height.

    I don’t like the “Add application” in the applications menu, it should be a separate “Ovi Store” icon, like all the other icons.

    That footage seems old, I wonder what’s their current progress.

    • Andre

      It is themeable. And it’s likely old.
      We’ll know more by mid-september

  16. August 3, 2010 at 1:41 am

    I hope Symbian^4 will have a similar look’n’feel.

    • Andre
      August 3, 2010 at 2:04 am

      They’ve said that’s what they’re trying to do for S^4. Check out the UI layout for applications there and the layout for applications on MeeGo, they’re VERY VERY similar.

    Does it make sense to have the home button on the top left corner? Considering the probably >4″ display.

    • Andre
      August 3, 2010 at 6:07 pm

      That’s a necessary part of the UI because of the varying hardware designs that are to be expected with MeeGo devices. Some OEM’s will include hardware home buttons and others won’t simply as a matter of aesthetics. There has to be a persistent way to exit, a persistent way to get to the homescreen and a persistent way to switch tasks. It’s the way the UI is. Not saying that it’s perfect but it’ll work.

      • webby
        August 3, 2010 at 6:35 pm

        I would definitely prefer some hardware buttons to free up some more screen, make the options, home etc easier to reach and to make it a bit prettier.

        • Andre
          August 3, 2010 at 11:10 pm

          I’d have to agree with you there.

      • wes
        August 5, 2010 at 2:31 pm

        Well, the button is necessary of course, just the placement would prob. be better somewhere else? Lower left corner e.g.?

    It’s a very good UI. I hope that S4 will be good as well. I cross my fingers to have a good hardware…

    that’s Meego-harmattan.real meego is different.nokia will use this.

  20. mja
    August 3, 2010 at 12:45 pm

    How do you know it’s Harmattan and not S^4?

    • JFH
      August 3, 2010 at 4:51 pm

      You can tell by the design this is Harmattan.

      • Andre
        August 3, 2010 at 6:05 pm

        I agree with JFH on this one, the launcher is a dead giveaway for MeeGo.
        Even though in passing this could be mistaken for S^4 😉
        That seems like a good thing don’t ya think?
        Consistency across devices?
        Most users too dumb or don’t care enough to notice the difference except that one is slightly better and more expensive 😉

        To me it sounds like a damn good plan
