Nokia Musings: The mobile phone that can be whatever you want it to be! [video]

The other day I was reading a post about the Nanotech Europe report of 2009 and how developments in the field of nano-technologies have been coming along in Europe. After reading the post I couldn’t help but remember a gem of a design concept that was released by Nokia last year and I wanted to share it with you.

Nokia has always been a leader and innovator in the field of communications and this video gives us a glimpse at what Nokia thinks the future will look like. They explore different applications and uses that nano-technology will have in the field of communications and some of the benefits of being able to achieve the dream of nano computing and how it will effect the way we communicate and interact with reality.

This concept design is called Morph, and as the name implies it’s the mobile phone that will be whatever you want it to be.

Nokia Musings: The Future is Nano

Nokia in 2015 – The Way We Live Next

“At Nokia, we believe in seamless integration of devices with services…”

In general, this video promises a better, more comprehensive and interconnected platform for services and communication through the Nokia devices. This all seems well and good, however, there are some concerns that need to be addressed!

  1. Constantly Learn from Consumers: Although this sounds very appealing, the first thought that crossed my mind when hearing it was: privacy concerns! Do we really want or need Nokia, or any other manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer, to know more about us; How we think? What we like? Where we go? What we do?
  2. The OVI Platform: Despite the fact that the OVI platform seems interesting, I think Nokia is not the strongest player when compared to Google and Apple when it comes to web presence and mobiles.
  3. Global Knowledge Sharing: How secure is this server where the data is stored? What if it was hacked? What are the measures to protect our information?
  4. High Level of Dependence: Do we really want to reach a stage in life where we would be “lost without our phones”? Moreover, what happens when the system is down?

Nokia believes that services and devices together will create the solutions our consumers will want in the future, the way we manage and analyze the information generated by these solutions will drive us to a whole new level of consumer understanding”...

We have heard what Nokia believes… Therefore, the question is: What do you believe: Do you support fully automated systems paving your every step? Do you trust sharing your intimate and detailed information with Nokia? What other concerns do you have after watching the video?
