Google Phone AnnouncementGoogle has plans to announce the highly rumored “Google Phone” today which is likely going to be an open platform, Linux-based operation system that runs on mobile phones and is catered to Google applications rather than being an actual specific handset. The latest list of speculated partners for providing the phone include Sprint, Motorola, Samsung and NTT DoCoMo although these are just rumored partners as everyone involved with the deal has kept very quiet about it at Google’s request. Verizon and AT&T have both had talks with Google but reportedly are still leery of the Google-centric plans.

The new Google Phone system is expected to be Linux based with the open source Java development platform laid on top with tools that Google would “give away” to developers to allow them to openly create applications to run on the G-Phone’s platform. The phone has is also being rumored to provide internet access at speeds as fast as you might find on your home computer, but all navigation would be through Google, of course.

Quicksilver Pac-Man style phone

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2007

Quicksilver’s new phone looks like Pac-ManThis stylish new phone concept comes from a company that normally makes surf clothes. Apparently, that was getting boring, so they are branching out. And their first attempt is fairly neat looking to say the least. In it’s closed state, it resembles a Pac-Man hibernating. Opened up, it kinda looks like a crescent moon with a screen.

No one seems to be sure if this has actually passed the concept phase at the moment. While it gets points for looks alone, it certainly doesn’t look easy to use.

LucidTouch transparent touch screen

LucidTouch transparent touch screenMobile devices equipped with touch screens, such as the iPhone, are without a doubt a stellar forward progression in device interface that is very intuitive to users, but still have their faults. The technology behind the screens fault due to occlusion and the way in which the touch is mapped to cursor position making it sometimes difficult to make a selection, especially if you have large fingers. Enter LucidTouch, a technology in the works from Microsoft and Mitsubishi Electric lab research.

LucidTouch employs a pseudo transparency that displays the fingers as shadows from behind the screen but not other objects behind it. The shadow effect is essentially a feature designed to make the user experience more natural than simply displaying touch points coming from the back of the screen which might confuse a user as to which finger is associated with which dot, with the shadow transparency the user needn’t think making the UX more intuitive. A passive touch feature allows the user to utilize their thumbs in making direct touch selections from the front of the device which may be used simultaneously with other fingers at the back using the multi-touch ability of the device.

Motorola Z9 Preview photosThe Boy Genius Report has gotten their hands on an early version of the upcoming Motorola Z9 with a number of very cool looking photos. According to the report the Z9 has 3G, a 2 megapixel camera (and a flash), Synergy OS and a microSD card slot. It’s also looks like it’s going AT&T’s way with an AT&T branded browser key and firmware.

From the photos the Motorola Z9 is a thin slider-style handset with a some type of click-wheel for navigation and some funky looking buttons, but this is an early prototype so it could be that these buttons will be covered with something a little nicer when it’s done. A very cool look nonetheless. We can’t wait to see more about this one.
