I am just sad that the Nokia N9, and specifically the user interface of that phone, doesn't seem to come back. The Joola people have stated that they don't own the rights to the UI, and considering the UI of their phone it doesn't look like they were the ones inventing it either.

Nokia N9 still has the best interface of any touch device I have ever tested: 3 screens.
#1 is apps in a scrollable, configurable list
#2 is all your active apps, running in parallel. Open one, close on, close all
#3 is all your messages, combined in one long chronological scroll list: Facebook, rss, twitter etc. No need to open any web page!
You navigate between the screens by swiping left or right. All apps are closed by swiping from top to bottom, and you leave to the home screen with the app running in the background by swiping from right to left. So elegant and simple

Yes, I remember looking at the N9 a few years ago, and don't remember much other than that I was impressed by how the UI functioned.
