Sony mylo.

37 signals says it is up for grabs, because for more functions than actually making a call, the UI sucks. Some are hoping for a new iPhone, Mike Arrington likes the upcoming Sony mylo.
That just looks like a mixture of PS2 controller and senso toy to me. It looks big, heavy and not like something I want to hold to my head (or can jam between head and shoulder).Really people, if you want to create a device that people will love to use for calling people, listening to music, surfing the web on the fly, you have to realise that that is something that no device has done successfully in the past. Therefore, don't use models of the past...

Touch your caller by phone

The idea that you could identify a caller by some combination of touch and smell reminds me of the amazing capabilities of science fiction writer Frederik Pohl's Joymaker, a combination phone and PDA from his prescient 1966 novel The Age of the Pussyfoot. In the novel, Forrester is brought back to life from cryonic storage; he is not quite prepared for the capabilities of his Joymaker phone, which politely asks if he is ready to pick up his message from a Miss Bensen.

Cell Phones of the Future

It’s not everyday that you see a phone that can “bend and twist” at your command or transform a number of ways, so check out these incredible cell phone concepts of the future, as some just may become a reality sooner than you think.

Black Label Retroxis Cell Phone

Designed by Lim Sze Tat, the Black Label Retroxis is a cell phone concept that “reflects a retro approach towards design with clean aesthetics, optimum controls and functions.”

Sony Ericsson concept Cell phone

Knowing his love for new phones, one of his friend sent to him a mail informing that Sony Ericsson will launch this phone soon. This phone doesn’t exist at all and is just a mock. Looks nice and the creator puts an imaginary 2GB storage, 3.2 megapixel camera, radio and bunch of other features in this sleek phone. But who is “HE”? Who care?

Black Diamond from Sony Ericsson

This new Black Diamond concept is looking incredibly hot, especially the “borderless screen” effect. This was achieved by throwing on a layer of polycarbonate, coupled with integrated a screen based on OLED technology.

Although candybar style handsets might not be as popular as swiveling, sliding, or flipping phones, this Black Diamond idea can certainly grow into those form factors down the line, much like how the RAZR morphed into a SLVR.Not much is known about the Black Diamond handset designed by Jaren Goh, but based on the snapshots, it should include a 4.0 megapixel camera. The usual stuff will probably also be included, like Bluetooth support and all that jazz. The Diamond cell phone is definitely a luxury phone. However, its not on the market… YET. It should be released around the beginning of 2007 by the company VIPN. Their website offers a special edition which made out with real diamonds and titanium, all for the small price tag of $300,000… FREAKING WOW.

Future designs

Clamshells and candy bars be gone. Tomorrow's cell phones may bear little resemblance to the snap-open handsets or even the sleek, flat rectangular phones we sport today. Visionaries from design firm Pilotfish and sensor maker Synaptics have created a phone that has no buttons. It's operated with gestures. Designer Manon Maneenawa has built a phone that can be converted into an alarm clock or a wrist watch. Sweden's GoldVish just began selling a phone for $1.26 million that features diamonds and a secret compartment.Read on for a glimpse at the future of cell phone design.

Future Nokia

There’s forward thinking all the way up to 5G mobiles, which Nokia reckons we’ll have by 2015, with handsets made from recycled material, doubling as photo frames, and even performing surveillance.

Samsung’s WiMax Device Slash Mobile Phone

Samsung has jumped on the WiMax and convergence bandwagons and unveiled at the recent Mobile Wimax Summit a phone/media player/mini computer that is compatible with the long-range wireless broadband technology. The device sports a unique three-way folding, and according to the company, is the world’s first WiMax device that doubles as a mobile phone.
The SPH-P9000 will work with mobile WiMax standards, as well as CDMA 1x EVDO, the 3G standard for mobile communications used in the US as well as parts of Asia. According to Samsung, the device will use WiMax for internet applications and EVDO for mobile voice communications.
Along with traditional mobile functionality and a 1.3 megapixel camera, the SPH-P9000 sports a few PC-style features, including a fold out Qwerty keyboard and a 30GB hard drive, and runs Windows XP as its operating system. The device measuring 143 x 92 x 29.7 mm and weighing 560g, includes functions such as MP3 player, and VOD (Video on Demand) which will offer users quick access to multimedia entertainment. It runs the full version of the Microsoft Windows XP OS, and also supports the CDMA mobile phone communications standard.
The Samsung WiMax device will be available in its home territory of South Korea in the first half of 2007 though the company has not yet disclosed the pricing.

Nokia Open, Cell Phone of the future ?

Not sure if this Nokia concept cell phone will ever be for sale, if it does I will be first in line for it.
“The “Nokia Open” is/would be a cell phone that opens like a fan with a “scrollable touch screen,” which seems to be an essential-yet-nonexistent item that would need to be invented in order for this to work. The idea is that with the push of a button the thin phone opens up, revealing a spacious screen on which buttons and menu options appear for you to manipulate with your digits. All well and good, but a cell phone that appears before you on the wings of a magical eagle would be cool too, though I’m not expecting Nokia to start marketing it anytime soon.”
