Futuristic Nokia cell phone designs.
Those are absolutely wicked.
I think they are pretty hideous.
ha ha. they arn't that bad. but why is it all "futuristic technology" looks wet?
In the 80's, "futuristic" meant square, rigid corners. In the 90's/00's "futuristic" means curves and wavy lines. It'll be interesting to see what "futuristic" means in ten years. I mean, what else is there other than rigid and wavy?
I think (some of) those designs are totally awesome though. Not realistically priced, I assume.
Just look like winamp skins to me.
The new designs are great but, my new samsung - that replaced my 3 month old nokia, that replaced my 6 month old moto, all have the same problem - Horrible sound quality, and dropped calls. How about they figure out that phone part first, then throw in the kitchen sink? What was that? Your breaking up - I'll call you back...
Some of them are nice, others look too tacky.
One thing for sure, I really doubt we'll ever see any thing but retangular screens for a long time. Sure, you may be able to make screen like that, but if you're going to be running some sort of highly functional OS, round corners are just too much of a pain to deal with, it aint worth it, yet.
Here's a little tip for Phone geeks. Nokia (and other sites) generally have a section on their site specifically for the press. Lots of High Resolution photos of the latest phones, many of which are not available yet. Lots of "futuristic" design already.

I mean't here:
Where's the furshlinger preview on this thing? :)
I believe it was Spongebob who said "In the future, everything is made of chrome." Damn your genius, Spongebob, damn it.
I believe everything below the Minority Report is material from old mockups to sell people on 3G UMTS ahead of time. I don't remember the exact year but it was from the 1997-2001 period.
I am a hobo in the house of the lord.
