With the recent buzz about the use of the free iPhone “jailbreakme” AppSnapp Installer for 1.1.1, we’re disappointed to say that the iPhones soon to be delivered to the UK from O2 won’t be able to take advantage of this brilliant piece of firmware breakthrough…
Why? It seems that from the image shown above, the iPhone which will be arriving the UK on November 9th will come with the latest firmware version 1.1.2, which means this lot will have already out-paced jailbreakme‘s recent application.
Due to the surprising number of fake videos that are now emerging on the net over this topic, it took us a little more time than we anticipated to find the appropriate videos to put together into this post.
The below video was shown by Nokia’s Senior VP for software platforms Lee Williams, basically the main focus on the topic of S60 Touch UI is direct access to all keys, physical feedback on touch…etc… The video promo itself isn’t outstanding and you will actually find near the end of the video that unlike Apple which decided that their screens would be solely designed for touch and control using fingers, Nokia’s will come with a stylus pen! Rolling backwards abit now are we?
Read on to find out what Lee Williams has to say about the new S60…
Like Dusan at IntoMobile said, there isn’t alot of interest in comparing the two phones as pictured… Both phones have been designed for different purposes, the SE K850i, an obvious high quality 5-megapixel camera phone with flash.
While the Apple iPhone, a fully equipped multimedia phone less so focused with photography but has a much larger touch screen plus iPod, WiFi, bluetooth…etc This comparison by DailyMobile.se may seem strange, but it certainly has brought out the point that the Apple iPhone is much much more thinner than the latest 5-megapixel camera phone by Sony Ericsson. More pics after the break…
Yes, Apple has finally decided to open up the latest iPhone as well as the Touch to 3rd party applications, however the community will need to wait until February for this “software development kit” to be released.
Here’s what Steve Jobs said in the press:
Let me just say it: We want native third party applications on the iPhone, and we plan to have an SDK in developers? hands in February. We are excited about creating a vibrant third party developer community around the iPhone and enabling hundreds of new applications for our users. With our revolutionary multi-touch interface, powerful hardware and advanced software architecture, we believe we have created the best mobile platform ever for developers.
