Or shouldn't they try to attract the people who haven't switched to iOS so far because of the unattractive system and ui?
What I meant was that some things become standards, unwritten ad hoc standards of how things are supposed to work. A door knob, light switch, right hand threading in nuts and bolts, steering wheel, brake pedal. For phones pinch to zoom, swipe to go to next page/song/whatever, kinetic scrolling. Once a certain way of doing things has reached public consensus among enough people, it becomes "intuition", and making something different will make it worse because it will be counterintuitive, even though it actually could be a better solution.

Counterintuitive things may also reach a public consensus, like left hand driving in the UK and japan (or right hand driving elsewhere depending on your point of view).

Besides, regarding Symbian^3, I find it more pleasant to use than iOS, in fact very similar to Maemo. Even S60v5 is pleasant to use.

Or, say, a mobile communications technology that allows people to (mostly) use a mobile phone in multiple countries, with different providers, switch phones without switching number, etc. etc.

So, Nokia has patents on (actual inventions) GSM. Apple has patented some "ideas" (e.g. pinch to zoom). Apple refuses to cross-license these "ideas" (not even the implementation, spec, actual standard) in return for access to the GSM patents.

So, please don't blame Nokia for not using these "unwritten" (but patented) "standards".

There's E6 that got a bit unique 640x480 screen for a Symbian phone, but the much more interesting device for us can be now found from Ovi store publishing, RM-680.

No model number yet, but hopefully that above is at least some kind of sign that N9 might appear in MWC.

That's not surprising, I imagine they have lots of hw scudding about being developed. The question is how far off a working kernel (and therefore rest of the system) is for the device, and therefore how far off a release would be.
