Nokia presents video scenarios of the future

Nokia video scenarios
Nokia has released a number of short videos on its own website and on YouTube that explore how mobile phone design may change in the next three or four years.

There is a video for each of the four categories, or put more simply different lifestyles, that Nokia focuses on.

The videos are not showing prototypes of actual phones or devices that Nokia is currently working on or plans to launch. They are exploring futuristic concepts and potential new ideas that may or may not be produced in years to come. They are designed to inspire and stimulate discussion around how the mobile device of the future might look and function in our lives.

It looks like these are the same videos that Alistair Curtis, Nokia’s head of design, presented at the end of November at the Nokia World conference in Amsterdam.

Nokia – Achieve: Achieving Together | (on YouTube) (1:50)
Members of an architectural firm work feverishly together to win a competitive new project. Virtual teamwork is made effortless through smart wireless conferencing and remote presentations. Bluetooth audio ensures strong and clear communication. When mobile technology ascends to this level, we will achieve great things together.

Nokia – Connect: Connecting Simply | (on YouTube) (1:41)
We visit a grandmother who is virtually surrounded by her family as she prepares the evening meal. Simple interfaces scale up to wall mounted touch screens for ease of use. A spoken phrase is quickly translated into a large, readable text message to send. To connect simply is to honor what we value most as humans: staying close to those that matter.

Nokia – Live: Inspiring Senses | (on YouTube) (1:45)
What do our devices say about us? We seek new forms of personalization which are fluid and spontaneous, such as using captured images to transform our devices instantly. We exchange electronic business cards with the ease of passing a note. Reinventing personalization will inspire new ways to tell the stories which are uniquely our own.

Nokia – Explore: Sharing Discoveries | (on YouTube) (1:36)
People connect through their passions. An obsession with astronomy has led one man to scale a tall building, rapidly capturing and sorting images along the way. He is alone – and not alone. He is sharing his discoveries with a vast community of kindred observers from all over the world. Explore extends the reach of minds inclined to wander.
