Everyone’s getting fanatical about their cell phones these days. Especially if concept phones like Nokia’s very own Aeon ever make it into the mass consumer market. The Aeon will feature a full touchscreen surface that does away with the standard keypad, giving you an extremely sleek and sexy look that is guaranteed to turn heads each time you answer a call. One thing’s for sure though – unless Nokia knows how to perfect a material that does not attract fingerprints like ants to sugar, you’ll probably spend half your time wiping the Aeon.
And despite it good looks, it comes jam-packed with current technology, plus a few new ones – such as Nokia’s wireless concept, called “Wibree”. Wibree is a prototype open technology offering connectivity between mobile devices or personal computers, and small, button cell battery power devices such as watches, wireless keyboards, toys, and sports sensors. The technology enables new use-cases and growth potential in this market segment.
So, sign me up! I’d easily drop a few bennys for this slick unit. I’ll monitor this phone’s development – even though it seems that Nokia might not actually release it as a consumer phone. This is one rumor I hope is proven wrong in the months to come.
