S^y^m^b^i^a^n^3: GAHHH


I just wanted to point out again, just how irritating the ‘Symbian^3’ text branding is. Utterly, utterly annoying. Can people please stop putting the power sign in when they’re writing about Symbian? Can we all just call it ‘Symbian 3’ like any normal person might?

I know this isn’t strictly accurate, given the multitude of revisions the OS has gone through, however it’s just about the stupidest thing you could possibly do when you’re trying to reach mild mannered consumers accustomed to beautiful branding.

It’s far too inaccessible for the masses.


Ok, actually, Symbian.3 is ok for me. That works.

Let’s please try and use something that doesn’t immediately alienate folk?
