I am an interaction designer for mobile phones. I've been asked this
question many times by people outside of our team: "why don't you copy
Nokia? Nokia is so easy to use." This has been a big discussion topic
within our team, because we don't want to just "copy" Nokia, but it seems
like Nokia UI has well-established itself as the guidelines/benchmarks for
all mobile phones.
What do you think about Nokia's position in handheld UI design/usability
Are all the handheld UI going to converge at some point?
