Complete (with pictures) MeeGo Handset UX guidelines
With the Handset UX day 1 release comes the release of UX guidelines for it. Previously revealed as "Bananas and pears" (which we covered a couple of weeks ago), this new document contains screenshots, diagrams and use-cases: Ultimately, these guidelines will act as a guide for those who wish to design an application for MeeGo. They are written primarily for interaction and visual designers. Visual design guidelines may be added for a future version, or as a companion document. Reading through the document gives you a real sense of how MeeGo is intended to feel in day-to-day use. Although some of the concepts (four icons along the bottom of the launcher) may feel a little too much likes clones of competitors and market-leaders; there are still some strong Maemoish hints.
