The upcoming device might be based on Microsoft's Windows Phone
Finnish mobile phone Nokia is expected to unveil to the world a new, revolutionary smartphone in the not too far future, some of the latest reports on the matter suggest.In a recent interview with Finnish newspaper Kauppalehti, Nokia’s design chief, Marko Ahtisaari, confirmed to the world that the handset vendor was working on new hardware that would change the manner in which users took advantage of their devices.
According to him, with the new device in their hands, “users do not need to look down to use it and poke their finger at the screen.”
The first thing that comes to our mind is that users will be able to control the new device using their voice, something that has been done before.
If this is so, then Nokia will pack the phone with some sort of a rival for Apple’s Siri, though taken to a totally new level.
On the other hand, there is also the possibility that users will enjoy a completely new design coming from Nokia, or some other capabilities that will make the device stand out in a crowd.
Clearly, Nokia has already proven that it is capable of delivering change, especially after the launch of no less than four Windows Phone devices in only five month.
However, it remains to be seen what exactly Nokia’s Marko Ahtisaari wanted to say when naming this device revolutionary. Apparently, the smartphone is ready now, and might be launched soon.
At the moment, Nokia is said to be working both on new Windows Phone devices, as well as on a tablet PC that would run under Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 8 platform. The mystery phone from the vendor could run under Microsoft’s mobile operating system as well.
Until more details on either the new smartphone or on Nokia’s tablet emerge, you can learn more on what Ahtisaari said during the aforementioned interview from this article on TNW.
