SPB Mobile Shell for Symbian s60v5 on the Samsung i8910(video)Posted on February 18th, 2010 19 comments
SPB software just announced version 5.0 of SPB Mobile Shell with support for Android and Symbian devices. I am a huge fan of the SPB Mobile Shell 3.5 on my Windows Mobile HP Ipaq 211 and I’m glad to see this ported to other platforms. The new update features:
- New 3D engine
- Natural Interaction Engine
- 3D widgets
- Tight integration with Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social networks
- SPB UI Builder 2.0
- Multi-platform support: Android, Windows Mobile, Symbian
Considering that some devices come with SPB Mobile Shell as the default UI, this is a whole new chapter for the Samsung i8910, a new lease of life. You can check out a video demo by http://www.geeks.hu from the Mobile World Congress 2010 after the break.
Awesome right? I should be getting a demo application in due course to show you a more in-depth overview. From my experience with my Windows Mobile PDA, the integration is really deep. I also understand is makes use of Open GL ES 2.0 making it the first application on the i8910 that uses this.
