Chris Ciaccia from The Street on Nokia’s CEO calling the iPhone’s interface old:
If the user interface is old, then why have Apple’s competitors, including Samsung, worked so hard to make their user interface look a lot like iOS?
What about the charge that iOS doesn’t run multiple apps at once, which BlackBerry 10 and Samsung can do?
The theory that the iPhone doesn’t allow you to run multiple apps at the same time isn’t exactly true. Users can listen to Pandora while reading Twitter, Facebook, or any number of apps. The ability to run multiple apps at the same time is limited, but it’s not entirely 100% accurate.
And why is multitasking limited? Most smartphone users prefer long battery live over a feature they’ll seldom use.
I like the floating, informative tiles in Microsoft’s Windows and I suspect iOS 7 will have an improved lock screen with customizable information tiles.
