Nokia floats out a collection of cool concepts

Folding phone with a nose of its own

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Concept phone designs sometimes materialise into real products, so although Nokia's latest line-up of maybes seem unlikely, we can keep our fingers crossed eh?

Last month we saw a few concept designs for Windows Phone 7 mobiles. In response, Nokia has put out five of its favourite mobile designs that will probably remain conceptual, but look pretty awesome nevertheless.

The highlights are the "Scentsory concept" - a folding phone with an LED touchpad, two screens and stereo speakers. It also detects scents and temperature, which it sends across to the receiver in true sci-fi fashion. If only.

Then there's the "Kinectic concept" which transforms digital information into energy through the electromagnet in its base. When a call is received, the weight is shifted, allowing the phone to rise up magically off the table. To reject the call, simply push it back down. Sweet.
