Nokia Takes A Glimpse Into The Future With Morph

Some time ago, Nokia revealed plans for a concept phone capable of being flexible enough to wrap around a wrist, bend and contort its shape at will and remain flat as a pancake at rest. It looked great, but all seemed a tad futuristic and there was no particular reason to believe that it would ever see the light of day. Following work with the University of Cambridge, Nokia has recently announced that the ‘Morph’

The 10 Weirdest Mobile Phones Ever…

One doesn’t have to search far and wide to find the hottest new mobile phones. It does, however, take a bit of investigative research and blatant subjectivity to compile a list of a “strangely” different sort. Although one could easily pile on a wide assortment of other peculiar mobile devices to rival those selected below, I carefully weighed in on the coolest of the weirdest of mobile phones.

Nokia N96 – How To Beat The Phone Of 2007

Nokia certainly isn’t one for resting on its laurels, and has already announced a successor to the massively popular N95 handset. The original N95, which was subsequently upgraded to a black 8GB version with a handful of other tweaks that included a screen upgrade, is now set to be superseded altogether by the new Nokia N96, displayed recently at the 3GSM World Congress show. After a quick look at the specs it’s not a wildly dissimilar

Modu Build The World’s Smallest Mobile Phone

Smaller isn’t necessarily better when it comes to gadgets such as mobile phones and MP3 players, and despite the fact that advancing technologies and miniaturisation are allowing for ever tinier components, we’re getting to the stage where usability will start to suffer. This hasn’t stopped an Israeli company from producing what the Guinness Book of Records acknowledges to be the world’s smallest mobile phone, measuring just 72×37x8mm and weighing in at a svelte 40g.

Travellers Rejoice As The Disposable Mobile Phone Attacks Roaming Charges

It looks like something James Bond would never leave home without. And according to designer Vadim Kibardin, perhaps you should never be without this device either, particularly if you are inclined to find yourself traveling overseas or in any situation where your current mobile phone may not function properly. The Freedom Phone, as it’s called, is a compact, pre-paid phone that is both unorthodox in appearance and function. What some have called the mobile phone equivalent to

Custom Mobiles Made to Order But Do We Really Care Enough?

Has the dawn of custom-made mobile phones arrived? Already compared to the fashion in which Dell impressively transformed the computer business with mass-produced, personalized, factory-direct desktop computers, the upstart company called zzzPhone has unveiled a new service that delivers factory-direct custom mobile phones through its website www.zzzPhone.com. With multiple assembly facilities in Asia – in strikingly close proximity to the factories of Motorola, Samsung, Nokia, and Palm – these “personalized,” tri-band mobile phones provide features

PS3 Phone Out Now…Maybe!

Rejoice! One of the most hotly anticipated products is finally on the market and it’s…not what we expected at all! Yes, although it’s called a PS3 and looks suspiciously like a PSP, complete with triangle, circle, square and cross buttons, the Amycall phone has nothing to do with Sony’s Playstation 3, or the recently denied PSPhone.   Breaking possibly every copyright law with huge abandon, the ‘Amycall‘ (expect a call from Samsung) ‘PS3′ (followed by

Hold the phone Jeremy! We’ve designed the Jeremy Clarkson mobile phone!

In his Times online column last week controversial motormouth Jeremy Clarkson turned his acid tongue to mobile phones, berating retailers for the ridiculously high-tech gadgets they stock, and not catering for the average consumer who wants a phone, and nothing but! Not one single mobile phone company in this vast and glorious world is offering a phone that is just that. A phone. A device that enables you to speak with someone a long way

Sony PSP Phone On The Horizon!

A few months ago, you may have heard that Sony was planning on releasing a ‘PSP Phone’, but hadn’t heard or read anything since. Indeed no phone has materialised as yet… so was this just another rumour going around? It seems not. A little digging around brought us to the US Patent & Trademark Office, and in particular to application number 20070123309 which looks as if it IS for an imminent PSP Phone! Well, we’ve

Nintendo DS Lite Mobile Phone – Concept

Here are the first pictures of a DS Lite as concept mobile phone / the perfect combined mobile phone, MP3 player, internet device, mobile office! Mobile phones are no longer just mobile phones, most offer internet access, office applications, gaming, live TV, mega-pixel cameras, radios and MP3 players. But quite often I find the experience of using these more advanced features disappointing because manufactures try to cramp all these features into a “mobile phone”. What

World’s Ugliest Mobile Phones? Fake BMW, Audi TT, Porsche Cayenne Mobile Phones

What will they think of next? The guys over at JAMPBlog have reported that some truly ugly mobile phones have been discovered in Hong Kong. Some bright spark had the idea of taking a basic phone and then encasing it with a model of a car. Already released is a BMW, Audi TT and Porsche Cayenne, see pictures below.

Sophia NANI – 800×400 Touch-Screen Mobile Phone

At last, someone has released a fully equipped mobile phone which can actually browse the internet with a full-size screen. Sophia Mobile launched the NANI at the Wireless Japan Show earlier this week. The NANI sports a massive 4.3″ touch-screen TFT display running at a crisp 800×400 resolution. This compares well to the iPhone’s comparatively small 3.5″ screen with only 320×480 resolution.  This high resolution (800×400) means that you shouldn’t have to keep scrolling around

M500 Mobile Phone Watch – Video Review and Pictures

The M500 is the world’s first fully functioning mobile phone watch. It is developed by the Australian based SMS Technology, and is more of a novelty than an everyday mobile phone. Due to it’s tiny size it is never going to be the most usable of devices, but I’m sure it will be in demand from gadget lovers all around the world.
