nokia aeon concept phone.



i've been telling a few people about a phone LIKE this for a bit now. i saw specs for something similar a couple of years ago when i was working at MIT. this damn thing looks SICK. i don't remember if nokia had folk at MIT working on it so i can't say if this was the same exact phone but i know it was something in the same vein.



a ton of other lil fun perks are gonna come with the phone, including but not limited to:
GPS
RFID
garage-door opener
credit card
an electronic wallet with built-in ID
from what i remember there talks of using it as a long range remote for your air conditioner.



who knows if it'll ever come out and if it'll even be a great phone. but i'm curious as hell about it.

I’m a little late commenting on this blog... But after reading an article about phones in Japan on a recent flight back from NY, I was going to blog about phones too! We are about 3 years behind them...! Let me tell you about some of the features their phones have RIGHT now...

Phones with two camera's, one on the back and one on the front. Why two? For video calling of course AND authentication! The Japanese build security into their phones so only the rightful owner can use it. The camera on the front authenticates your face before the phone becomes functional. They need all that security because they're phones work as their wallets and keys as well...

Say you are running late to catch the train and don't have time to buy a ticket, in Japan they can swipe their phone over the turnstile and the charge goes to their phone bill... Just think no more damn yellow MetroCard's....!

@ the grocery store you can just brush your phone past the scanner to pay. Not only that, you can get information on food you are thinking of buying. If you wanted to buy fish just scan the bar code w/your phone and it will display the day the fish was caught, where, and by whom...

Some of the phones can already open garage doors and start people's cars for them... Almost every Japanese phone has infrared functionality built in so the phone can work as an all-in-one remote!

The iPhone's touch screen is garbage compared to the 3-inch touch screens with higher resolutions that they have in Japan...

*sigh*

I used to be so happy with my Blackberry and Pocket PC...
