    Nice ideas but is it practical?

      yea some people will love this , it looks very sci fiction movie interface, i know i would not mind having it on my phone to show it off at times , but really not sure if its for everyday use , but then again i might use it when its out and think its great.

      yes its is, the swivel thingy is for show off yes, but the many main homescreens are very useful and practical/functional..

      not just a bunch of widgets interface 😛
      i used the older version for a month, and it was a pleasure(i switched to E72, but if i was still using the 5800, SPB would of remained my default desktop)

    isnt symbian^3 opensource, cant they just totally remove the default homescreen all together(to save some rams).. maybe that would require reflashing rom?

    maybe custom firmwares will be available 🙂

    looks great it should be neat to play around with when i finally get my phone (probably after this gets released too)

    so the N8 went up for sale officially at nokia.co.uk and i noticed the Orange one is now described as a “limited edition” and the Blue one won’t be available until the END of November!!!

    I knew they released too many to Russia etc -_- Now im going to have to wait basically 2 MORE Months to get mine now?!!! -_-

      The Orange is limited edition everywhere. They gave a lot of them to developers. I settled for a gray one because I didn’t want to wait and I’m loving it 😀

        yeah im thinking about settling too but that’d be such a bummer i do like the silver/grey one though

        or maybe i should just go with an orange one

    I’m pretty sure I’ll use the S^3 UI but when SPB 5.0 gets released, I might just use it once in a while (may be to show off ;)). I’ll skip SPB 3.7
