Warning: this Crave post may contain minor spoilers of the Dark Knight movie.
It is both a curse and a blessing that as an editor who reviews cell phones here at CNET, I have a tendency to notice mobile gadgets in almost every TV show and every movie I come across. And so it was with the recent Batman flick, the Dark Knight, that I noticed a very intriguing touch-screen handset that I've never seen before. Lucius Fox (played by Morgan Freeman) showed this slick-looking Nokia cell phone that was able to send sonar waves in 3D, letting him pull up a 3D sonar map of its location. Other blogs have noticed this phone as well, and have identified it as the yet-to-be-released Nokia Tube, which Nokia has mentioned that the phone seen in the film is not available commercially, but we can't help but speculate it's a taste of what's to come.before. Of course,
Some recent rumored spec lists have surfaced, hinting that the Nokia Tube will have a 3.2-megapixel camera, a wide-screen display, GPS, a 3.5 mm headset jack, Bluetooth, HSDPA, haptic feedback, and more. From what I could tell from its brief moments in the movie, the Nokia Tube looks like quite the slender device, and perhaps even smaller than the current iPhone. Of course, I can't tell a whole lot more from that, but perhaps this recent bout of fame means Nokia will spill the beans on the Tube sooner rather than later.
