Symbian finally gets in touch

Nokia showed off its new S60 touch-screen interface.

Am I the only one who feels that this is long overdue for Nokia? Oh well, better late than never: The Symbian Series 60 has finally gone touch!

At the recent Symbian Smartphone Show held in London, the Finnish company showed off its new S60 touch-screen interface that adds several features to the handheld platform. It includes support for tactile feedback, the ability to run existing S60 apps without modification and detection of motion, orientation, proximity and light, as well as the ability to display Flash videos on the S60 browser.

The new technology is expected to be available to device manufacturers sometime in 2008, though it's unclear when it will reach the consumer market.
