Andrew gave some demonstrations of Flash Lite showing implementations of low chrome (mainly just content) applications. Flash Lite allows users to customise aspects of the UI without forcing them to define everything.
Ken asked, "How do we know when a product is right?"
It’s when …
It’s self evident what it does
Has conspicuous value to the user
Has profound simplicity
There was discussion on…
Whether fitting several use-cases/modes into one device is solveable.
The possibility of end-user designed/customised UIs
The use of the phone as an application appliance (like a PC) rather than a service appliance
Is the phone limited by the (keyboard) method of input? What other methods are available?
Is current screen technology limiting things?
