THE PORTAL OF NEWS RELEATED TO NOKIA
The Transparent, flexible phone that you can contort to your hearts content. Now the company’s submitting a second missive to the Patent and Trademark office in the hope of claiming dibs on the IP contained therein. While it’s very broadly written (and doesn’t commit to anything), it’s interesting to note that the phone would switch between the leaf-shaped candybar (we played with it at MWC) and a wristband you can wear on the go. The patent also talks about a “remote processing unit,” in a nearby device or in the cloud, so, if the company can ever turn the dream into reality, the real action will be handled elsewhere. Then again, it’s equally as likely to never appear in our lifetimes, you just never can tell with patents.
