Now for some reason or another, the Symbian^3 homescreen introduces a perceivable “lag” when switching between screens. This is apparently designed that way (due to the active widgets on screen). The homescreen lag is less visible when in landscape (where the swipe movement would be more obvious than a possible mispress in landscape. You could […]

The N97 homescreen was quite nice when it was released. But lack of widgets, space and taste of Maemo 5 made it feel extremely old. Here’s a couple of videos showing a Maemo 5 style multiple homescreen on the N97. It uses GDesk like the videos in this 5800 homescreen hack post. Icon apps still […]

The N900, like the N97, has a homescreen which you can customize with LIVE widgets , contacts, bookmarks and app shortcuts. However, unlike the N97, the N900: has 4 homescreens (effectively making 1 big panoramic homescreen) the widgets/shortcuts are not locked into any specific position (like previous tablets)- customizing is very easy – delete, add, […]
