I think it is safe to say that the mobile space is heading in the direction of user experience. Mobile operating systems that offer annoying and complicated experiences are just not gonna make it in the long run against names like iPhone and Android. This is true for Symbian, it is true for Windows Mobile (although I hear the newer 6.5 is a huge improvement), and some will say it is true for BlackBerry.
While the Nexus One is making huge waves, a small company that has developed a Linux-based mobile operating system as well as an actual device, seem to be popping up more and more. I am referring to the First ELSE, which I probably heard about for the first time 6 months ago. They were at CES showing off their “revolutionary” mobile device, and without passing any judgement, I present to you two videos about the First ELSE. I will say it is different, but I am interested to hear what you think about their interface and the potential of such a device.
The UI is said to be optimized for one hand use, and you can read about the phone and its specifications on the Else Mobile website.
Do you think it will dominate the space? Does it look easy to use or do you think it is a little over the top? Please let us know in the comments:
