I meant to post this one earlier this month when the Nokia Asha 501 was announced, but with the Lumia 925 launch following the next week, and the terrible weather here in Delhi, I’ve been pretty slow to post things, heh. Nokia’s Head of Mobile Phones User Experience, Peter Skillman (who also worked on the Nokia N9 Harmattan UI) demonstrated the new Swipe-based UI on the Asha 501, on a giant screen, on a ladder.
It was definitely the most talked about thing after the launch, and it sure does take a lot of practise and co-ordination to pull it off! Check out the demo, right below:
Heh, not too bad at all, eh? Nokia sure is becoming active in their demonstrations. At the Lumia 925, Jo Harlow changed into a basketball uniform and dunked right on stage to demonstrate Nokia’s Smart Camera App. Cant wait to see what they have planned for their next launch, eh?
