Symbian UIQ devices gets more exciting

It’s been a rare sight of news on Symbian UIQ devices, but this time they got two juicy solid news; no mere rumors anymore like the unofficial yet of WinMob 6.1 (set to be announced at CTIA on April 1st / April Fool?). First is the OS getting updated into UIQ v3.3, which is only a minor tuned up & enhancement from the Symbian 9.3 foundation. The newest features include support for Opera Mobile 9.5 and Opera Widgets, the SDK kit for this new UIQ v3.3 is already out; that’s pretty fast compared to the slow iPhone’s SDK kit. See the user interface screenshots at Engadget Mobile here.
Second, according to BGR news
here; Sling Player has announced their support to put the Symbian UIQ into the next stop for Sling Player, set to be released on summer this year. The designated Symbian UIQ devices will include these following mobile phones:
Sony Ericsson P1i
Sony Ericsson P990i
Sony Ericsson W960i
Sony Ericsson W950i
Sony Ericsson M600i
Motorola MOTORIZR Z8
Indeed Symbian UIQ devices market is not as big as its sibling; the Symbian 60 & 90. So those news would bring fresh air to those who own Symbian UIQ devices, don’t worry you’re not left behind. And if you have a Wiimote along with your Symbian UIQ handset, then check this blog from BGR
here which says you could connect them altogether with the help from mobiPad application.
