wearable cellphone concept, that can be worn around the user’s wrist, just like a bracelet or a watch.
Wearable phones are nothing new, but when this sort of design meets eco-friendliness, something interesting is bound to be created. Mexican designer Veronica Eugenia Rodriguez Ortiz created the Yuxa
The device vibrates to let you know about calls, it supports Bluetooth and it’s made from ecological materials, like plant fibers and biodegradable plastic. This is an eco-friendly phone featuring an OLED display and rechargeable battery, plus an innovative means of communications: sending vibrations to other users.
This is almost like poking someone on Facebook, only it’s done in real life…

iPhone 4G release, so let’s face it: we’ve got to prepare for the next gen iPhone. We don’t yet know if Apple will change the handset’s design, but we wouldn’t mind if it would look something like this:
We’re in 2010, folks, the year of the Apple Tablet debut and the
There’s also a pretty neat roundup of rumours concerning the new device made by Cupertino, all of them comprised in the following image (click to enlarge). Among those, it’s very likely that the iPhone 4G will sport an OLED display, a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, a front facing video camera and a dual core processor and more RAM.
It’s interesting to note that the launch of the product, supposed to take place between May and July is considered a 99% sure fact. Speculations regarding the next gen iPhone also mention the presence of a touch sensitive case (making the handset resemble the Magic Mouse), 64GB of NAND flash memory, portable DVR functionality and built-in RFID.

XPERIA concept is dubbed the X20 or Scarlet and it’s the “bigger sister” for the X10 (Rachael) model. The handset looks fancy and powerful and we hope it gets turned into a real product.
Here’s the very first XPERIA device of 2010, created by Jozef Kocúr and pictured below. This
According to the designer, the smartphone features a 4.5 inch OLED touchscreen display, an 8 megapixel camera (probably complete with all the needed specs, like image stabilization, face detection and smile detector), a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a full QWERTY keyboard.
This is an Android OS handset that can easily rival Moto Droid, Nexus One and HTC HD2. Would you buy it?

ultra mobile computer concept that’s got all the specs you need to take your work on the road, at all times. Created by designer Sean Bovee, this device comes with a 9 inch touchscreen display, a full QWERTY keyboard that’s unveiled by flipping the screen and much more.
Slider is an
Slider supports mobile video streaming, that’s lag-free and it also comes with VoIP video chat, 1GB of RAM memory and a 1.5GHz processor. I’m really curious to see how resilient the hinge of this device will be, in case it becomes real. Another issue is the battery life, since the device can only operate for 4 to 7 hours.
The above-mentioned screen is an OLED one and you should know that the mobile computer’s specs list also includes, Bluetooth, WiFi, 4 USB ports and an 80GB SSD.

Nokia luxury phone in action. It seemed to be a brand new 8800 series model dubbed Erdos and before you know it, the video was removed from the web for violating some Nokia copyright. At least we have this pic left…
Just a couple of days ago, we stumbled upon a video showing a mystery
The mystery remains though, as we’ve yet to find out if this is a concept, real phone or simply a leak. Last we heard, the device was running Symbian S60 and it was made from a single piece of stainless steel. There’s also a piece of glass covering the display, a 2.4 inch OLED screen with a 320 x 240 pixels resolution.
The features list also includes Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Stereo Bluetooth, a 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash, video recording and autofocus. 8GB of internal memory are also on board, together with support for tri band GSM and dual band WCDMA.

South Korean designer Ungnoh Yoon created an interesting cellphone concept, dubbed Matrix Phone 02, that gets pictured below. The device is inspired by science fiction movies and combines traditional design with modern technology.
If you close the handset, it resembles a good old beeper or other mobile device, however, once the upper side slides you’ll notice the Graphen display. The screen uses next generation technology and transforms the old-school-looking concept phone into a modern device.
Matrix Phone 02 measures 140mm x 50mm x 15mm, but its length can reach 90mm if it’s closed. Once it shrinks, the handset only uses a green OLED for basic features, like showing the time, caller ID and providing a quick dial features. That Graphen display is pretty cool, but somehow, I think that the green screen is cooler… maybe because I’m old-fashioned.

iPhone Concept Contest at some point and what they got were some pretty neat designs from folks who envisioned their own version of the future iPhones. We’ve stumbled upon the iPhone Gesture concept phone, a device with two more touch-sensitive areas, when compared to the original Apple handset.
The folks of ilounge have held an
This is a gesture-enabled device that replaces the Home Button with a touch-sensitive area, placed beneath the phone’s OLED display. The gestures that control the iPhone invoke “meta” functions and will allow you to cut/copy/paste, lock the phone, control the music, change settings or activate the “flashlight” feature.
What do you say about this iPhone concept, created by Mike Manzano?

solar panel cells, fuelling the device and turning it into an eco-friendly gadget. What’s neat is that the Magnet Liteon comes with a big OLED display and a magnet at the back, allowing the user to change the structure of the panel.
Tryi Yeh created a visually stunning concept phone, the Magnet Liteon handset, that incorporates
Notice (in the images below) how the phone passes from Media mode to Game Mode and the large touchscreen display looks great, specially when used in landscape mode in a gaming session.
If I’m not mistaking, the screen part can be separated while playing games or watching movies and it can communicate wirelessly with the keypad part. A great concept phone, created by Tryi Yeh and finally a green gadget that looks decent.

Sony Ericsson concept phones blog, since we’ve gathered dozens, if not hundreds of SE designs here… The list of such neat phones continues, this time with a fresh design from RKSD (Rew Kown), a new Esato board user.
Sometimes I get the feeling that we’re becoming a

Although CTIA Wireless is history now, there are still a bunch of concepts to be checked out, as they’ve been missed by the general public. One of those is the Kyocera EOS concept phone, a foldable device packing an
The handset can fold up into some sort of wallet shape and there are 2 configurations it can use: a portrait QWERTY mode and a widescreen OLED display mode.
This astonishing phone even features shape memory keys that become flat when not in use and you should know that Kyocera EOS can be charged via a kinetic method, based on piezoelectric generators. Next up is the concept device in the last photo below (the one showing Slumdog Millionaire scenes), also a Kyocera design.
Known as “NXT”, this phone features a context-sensitive display and its controls change according to the handset’s functioning mode (movie, music, gaming). Kyocera promises that at least some of these technologies will make it to its upcoming portable devices, so we can only hope for the best.
