Since Peter Skillman from Palm is JUST taking over the reigns of the MeeGo User Experience team, I'm expecting the final OS Nokia releases to look quite a bit different than what we see here. The underlying OS probably won't change a whole lot, but I think the UI is probably going to get a fairly major overhaul between now and the time Nokia gets a product launched. At the very least there should be some significant tweaking of usability.
