During Nokia’s Capital Markets Day, the above slide came up depicting this touchscreen-only device with a pretty fancy UI. The slide got people in a frenzy and everyone was shouting “fake.” Although it’s a mockup, it was designed by Nokia and it serves as insight into where the company is going with handset design and UI. Recently, I’ve been playing with the Nokia E71 and found the option menus to be the most confusing thing since pre-Rosetta Stone hieroglyphics. For example, here is how you delete an email account that you created but no longer use:
Go to MESSAGING, find the EMAIL you want to delete , press options, press SETTINGS, press on E-MAIL, find the EMAIL you want to delete, press option, and than press the DELETE option.
Have you ever seen more redundant button pressing?
