Nokia develops eco phone concept

nokia_eco_phone_concept

Nokia is challenging traditional mobile phone concepts and seeking to help the environment in one go, with the unveiling of its Eco Sensor Concept handset design.

The Finnish phone giant claims it designed the handset not only to be capable of making calls, but also to provide individual and ecological benefits.

While the Eco Sensor phones doesn’t seem as though the phone’s designed to let users monitor their individual carbon footprint, Nokia claimed that by making the handset as small as possible, it’ll be helping to minimise any environmental impact and reducing the need for too many materials.

First Five Days in France gone over 30 000 iPhones

side-profile

French mobile phone operator Orange sold 30,000 iPhones in the five days following its November 29 launch, the company said Wednesday.

In comparison, German operator T-Mobile said it sold 10,000 on November 9, the day the phone went on sale there. Apple’s U.K. partner O2 said the phone is its fastest-selling ever, but refused to give sales figures.

Some 80 percent of Orange customers bought the iPhone with an "Orange for iPhone" service contract that includes unlimited access to the Internet and the Visual Voicemail service.

Those customers paid €399 (US$585) for their iPhone, the same price T-Mobile charges for its iPhones.

Orange also offers the iPhone for €549 with other types of contract, or €649 without a contract.

About 1,500 were sold without a contract, said Orange spokesman Louis Michel Aymard.

Customers buying an iPhone from Orange for use on another operator’s network must pay a €100 unlocking charge, which is waived if they wait for six months from the purchase date. Since an iPhone without a contract is of little use on Orange’s network, the majority of those 1,500 customers have probably unlocked their phones, Aymard said.

Orange is now the only one of Apple’s network operator partners to sell the iPhone unlocked. It does so to comply with a French law that forbids making the sale of one item conditional on the sale of another.

Apple patenting multi-touch for whole hand?

applefullhandmultitouch-lg2

Apple may extend the multi-touch technology found in its iPhone and iPod touch to larger displays by implementing new inventions which allow users to use different parts of their hand as well as use different presses to trigger certain actions, according to three patent filings published today. Comprising a patent for a sensor arrangement that addresses different parts of the hand as well as accompanying patents for conductors and sensors, the development relies on an array of improved capacitive sensors that can not only detect the proximity of hand contact but also determine which part of the hand is in use by the surface area. The system is also sensitive to pressure across multiple areas, Apple says.
