not just a ‘phone’

Back then in late 19th century when Alexander Graham Bell brought us the telephone, nothing else could have seemed more innovative. The idea of talking to people far far away from you was simply mindly boggling. Of course, we are now in the 21st century and people at Apple and Nokia have to innovate somehow in a fight for market share. So what do they do? Let’s talk about Apple.

Presenting the new iPhone. A helluva OS X running on a phone. Not just you can talk, you can open up Safari or iTunes or whatever you please. Slide your finger over the screen to unlock the phone and have it get locked again when you bring it near your ear. Not only this and lots other innovative features, the phone looks great too!

Nokia of course can’t stay too far behind. In the spotlight is the Aeon, a full surface screen phone with  all the jazz that matters (and what doesn’t matter too!). Can we classify it as another wave of innovation hitting the phone ever since Graham Bell’s baby? Yes or No, get ready to see things like never before. Because what you imagine now will be reality in a hour or so. Such is the pace of innovation!
