Nokia morph phone concept
“Nokia’s Morph nanotechnology concept, developed by Nokia Research Centre, and England’s University of Cambridge, has been put on display, at The Museum of Modern Art, in New York, USA. Morph is basically a concept, showing how mobile phones could be in the future – stretching, and flexing the phone into different shapes. But, ultimately, the technology inside the morph concept shows off transparent electronics, and, self-cleaning surfaces. Hopefully, elements of the Morph concept should be available in handsets, within the next seven years, obviously, in high-end devices, to begin with. The nanotechnology will hopefully allow for integrating complex functionality at a low price. Learn more about what the Morph can do here.” via mobile-review.com

Yahoo! Go Client (v3) Review For Symbian S60!
“Yahoo and Nokia have a good relationship, with a number of joint projects, so the continued support from Yahoo for their mobile phone client, Yahoo! Go, is welcome. Easily downloaded and installed, simply by pointing your smartphone browser at http://get.go.yahoo.com/, the java application provides a single icon to click on for a number of Yahoo services.With a big warning on the download page that you ‘have to install this on the internal memory’, the target audience (i.e. the non-Symbian geeks) might just wonder what to make of that – especially if they have an N81 or N95 8GB where, to their mind, all the storage is internal!The big change with Yahoo! Go 3 is that their widgets engine has been ported into the client. These widgets allow access services outside of the Yahoo portfolio – currently there are widgets for MTV News and MySpace. Yahoo is looking to release an SDK at some point in February so other sites can join in the fun. Of course, at that point they’re going to have to explain to their users how to install their widget into the Yahoo! Go system – and that’ll be a lot of hoops to jump through.” Read more here:
