  • Sungjoo Kim's Hello! Phone is designed to breathe new life into outdated mobiles.

    Old school phones can be slotted into the cradle, which acts as an extension of the device. The set-up could, for instance, give users access to new services including home security applications, where pictures taken by a camera phone are broadcast to the Hello!'s owner via the web.

  • This device, the Nokia 111, won its designer Dan Meyer an internship with Nokia.

    Based on the conceit of travellers who would keep a locket holding a family picture on their bedside, this device swivels to become a picture frame when it's not being used.

    Its swivelling shape also means it can be placed on a table during video calls to simulate normal eye contact.

    All of the devices and designs are now on show at the Air Gallery in London.

  • This phone, from student Hannah Nuttall, is made for the blogophile.

    Each device has three possible form factors - two of which can be seen here: the open book and the slider; the third form is the candy bar.

    The pen input and camera are intended to make it easier for inveterate bloggers to make postings while out and about.
