Last night, Symbian tweeted about a Symbian countdown, which you can now see over at countdown.symbian.org/
What does it all mean?
October 8? August 10? 108 units of time? 108 countries? Countdown for what? New device/Symbian^2/3? Who knows. On the horizon, something’s happening update wise with Nokia Messaging today. Also: new firmware of the N97′s supposed to be coming tomo, 28th right?
[update, scroll down, for some reason we're now at 61 and we've got rainbows, unicorns and hello kitty :S]
If you check out Dan McNeil’s tweet:
“Did you know that 108 is the hyperfactorial of 3? ie. (1^1)*(2^2)*(3^3) = 108 #symbiancountdown“
Symbian^1, Symbian^2, Symbian^3? S^1, S^2, S^3? Are we counting down for the new Symbian Foundation OS/ and revamped UI?
But today’s the 27th January 2010, and we all know there’s been a whole other huge countdown a lot of other people have been waiting for today.
10 AM, Pacific time. That’s what…18:00 GMT? Be prepared, Job’s Hype Machine is on the prowl. Damn tablet speculations end today. [McGraw-Hill CEO, Terry McGraw, confirms it is just an oversized iPhone...or words to that effect]
Update: For some reason we now have 61 and Unicorns, rainbows and hello kitty.
