Nokia N-XT: possibility of new touch interface

Nokia N-XT Concept

There have been so many concept phones over there. Nokia N-XT could be devaluated just as another concept phone. However, I think it reveals possibliyt of making a new touch user interface. First, let us browse its hardware specifications.

  • 4.1 inch full-touch display with a Wide-VGA resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and 16 million colors

  • Symbian S60 5th Edition Touch interface

  • 8-way D-pad

  • quad-band WCDMA connectivity

  • 8 MP camera with Carl Zeiss lens, optical zoom, auto focus, face detection, xenon flash & dual-LED flash and video recording (WVGA at 30fps)

  • Dedicated graphics processor unit (GPU)

  • Accelerometer

  • A-GPS and compass

  • Built-in DLP 720p projector

  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

  • Audio & Video players

  • FM radio and FM transmitter

  • 3.5mm audio jack

  • 24GB of internal memory plus microSDHC support

  • 1,800 mAh battery

It has a touch screen, GPS, accelerometer and magnetic compass. Nokia Research implemented a augmented reality system called MARA. MARA uses accelerometer, magnetic compass and GPS as base sensor system. With such a system, your phone can tell you what it sees.

Further, with the attached touch screen, you can select a specific object (building) and google it. So, the final image would be such like the figure below - a true mobile search without keyboard (with touch)
