CNET News Video: Nokia's future phone concepts

2:43 /

For 25 years, the Nokia Research Center has pushed the envelope of mobile technology. CNET visits with some of the team to check out their latest projects.

Hey everyone. I am Bonnie (To?) from (Tnet.com?) and we are here in Sunnyville, California where Nokia is celebrating the 25th anniversary of their Nokia Research Center. Over the years, they've come up with things like the ringtone SMS and now, they are working on some really interesting and exciting stuff including bendable displays and all touch screen phone. So let's have a look at what they're doing. Okay. So we are here with Andy (Fellow?) who is a product manager of a very interesting device called the Kinetic device. So why don't you explain what it is and give us a little demo. So Nokia Kinetic device shows you how intuitive and easy a direction can be by bending and twisting a flexible device. So by bending the device, you can (tune in?) the images, bending away to remote and twisting, you can browse the images either stepwise or give a twist and it goes slowly or fast if you twist more. Then when you find the image, you just bend it into two, bend out (and tune out?). We have a music application where you can browse easily by twisting and then activate the song by bending the device and fold it and that's the Nokia Kinetic device. A little while ago, I wrote up about a Nokia concept phone call, (the Gem?) which is an all touch screen phone and we've got the senior design manager here, (Yarco?) to explain the concept. So you got the phone on the front here and you got you know... In case... example, there is the phone on the front and then the maps on the back side. All right. And then of course, I can interact for example, I'll drag in the content that says an address to the map and then it finds. Okay. So then this application is called 3D World Gaze and it's basically lets you see through the planet. So we are now looking at the top of Sunnyville where we are and now zooming. So it makes everything just better below us and wherever I point with the phone, it always shows what's on the opposite side of the planet. If you would dig a hole to South America, it would dig to that direction and we can show the news or we can show images that the people have a place from these places. So there you have a look at some of the projects that Nokia is working on. Unfortunately, you probably want to see some of these devices in the near future but hopefully we'll see some of the technology and upcoming devices and we look forward to a more great inventions from Nokia in the years to come. I am Bonnie (To?) from (Tnet.com?).
