Home screen Orientation

Just a quick one to clarify that I'm not going mad!

Every screen bar the home screen rotates from portrait to landscape when the phone is rotated. Is this how it should be or have I missed a setting somewhere?

I know that this will get sorted once I put SPB Mobile Shell on there, but even so, it's a bloody stupid omission, isn't it? I notice it's the same on my g/f's 5800.

Yep that's how my X6 behaves and now that I remember my N82 also behaved the same way, no landscape for the home screen. Doesn't really bother me but like you I don't really understand the decision to keep the home screen portrait only.

strangely, the home screen does rotate as you turn the phone off... the Nokia logo will flip to landscape. Like you say tho... bit weird but solved by SPB Shell.


home, orientation, screen
