An advantage of having a UI that could certainly not be called the prettiest in the world is that it presents an irresistible challenge to design companies who want to fix it.
The Astonishing Tribe is just such a company, and besides designing the Sliding-Panels-like UI seen in the picture above, they have been trying their hand at attractive device locking software for the HTC Touch Diamond.Â Nothing they have designed is available yet (they are likely trying to sell to OEMs) but is certainly looks pretty and may inspire some of our developers to implement their good ideas more generally.
See their unlocking designs in video below.
Â Do any of these designs look practicable to you?Â Let us know in the comments.
