Nokia reveals glimpses of the mobile future

The headline was what appeared in my email inbox late last night so I immediately opened up the message to read what Nokia had to say about the future of mobility. Nokia was giving a briefing at The Way We Live Next event held at the Nokia Research Center in Oulu, Finland. You can actually listen to podcasts of the presentations, along with PDF versions of most presentations, at The Way We Live Next site.

All these functions were performed using a Nokia multimedia computer (aka smartphone).

SINGAPORE--Microsoft is on the lookout for research talent in China to focus on four core future technologies--speech recognition and synthesis, digital pen, panoramic pictures and multimedia compression for wireless communications networks.
