My interest in the apple i phone was more to do with its radical and ingenious way of handling touch commands, its simplified user interface, which even my mother found too easy and simple!
But i just cant believe that the SE experia has caught my imagination with none of this. But I just loved its design, the sliding keyboard and super wide 800x420 screen.
The concept of home screen split into 9 customizable panels (as SE calls em) is interesting. Though i wont call it radical or innovative, seems like a good improvement over HTC's today screens and i phone's menu interface.
But this panel screens will open up a new channel for mobile content providers to beam in live content. Imagine 9 panels with 9 content providers, all providing the best content, trying to get your attention, all yelling, click me, click me.
I already have a list of panels, i would wish to have: Gmail & G talk, Delicious, Orkut, facebook, cnet, twitter, my company mail, you tube..well the list is endless I believe.
