UIQ is going nowhere, Sony Ericsson are done with it
22 Oct, 2008
Sony Ericsson doomed the Symbian UIQ platform by publicly stating at the Symbian Smartphone Show in London that "UIQ didn't attract the operator, manufacturer or consumer interest needed to stop it from failing".
The other shareholder, Motorola, didn't have anything to comment.
Sony Ericsson's Patrick Olson admitted the failure of the UIQ platform to gain a steady fan base among users and a steady business case among network carriers.
That statement obviously explains the reason why Sony Ericsson cancelled their two latest UIQ smartphones even before they are officially announced. SE are obviously going full steam ahead with the Symbian Foundation, which will stake at providing a unified UI on diverse platforms.
We've always known that UIQ phones don't really have a competitive edge to them, but now it's official. UIQ is already a dead fish.
