Nokia Open concept – This mobile communication concept was designed by Hugo Danti, an industrial designer in Barcelona, Spain who won 1st prize in the NOKIA 4G mobile concept competition. One main button controls the primary functions while all others are accessible on the scrollable LCD screen that opens like a fan.
Based on colored e-paper, it incorporates touchscreen technology, and allows for the adjustment of space on the screen dedicated to each function, such as internet navigation during a video conference.
