IMHO, it is too early to say anything about it and comparing to Apple’s iPhone UI doesn’t do any justice because we are talking about something that doesn’t exist publicly.

An interesting piece to read. Over at Forum Nokia Blog, Harry Li discussed the possibility of porting Mozilla to Symbian OS. Among others, Harry mentioned the humongous size of Mozilla Platform. He said “Frankly, at first I hadn’t realized the size of the Mozilla Platform, until I read these from the book “Rapid Application Development with Mozilla”:
It is 30 times larger than the Apache Web Server, 20 times larger than the Java 1.0 JDK/JRE sources, 5 times bigger than he standard Perl distribution, twice as big as the Linux kernel source, and nearly as large as the whole GNOME 2.0 desktop source—even when 150 standard GNOME applications are included.”

Austrian Andreas Jakl whom I met in Budapest reports that their cool application ShakerRacer now goes OpenSource. We’ve earlier reported on ShakerRacer where you also find a video demonstration.
ShakerRacer allows you to control a real RC car with the accelerometer of the N95. This means that you can turn and accelerate simply by tilting your phone. The source code is now finally ready and has been released along with some documentation.
