It was supposed to be the next big thing but it fizzled out like MMS
An important thing to note is you would have to use the speakerphone
to do video calls (unless you're always on BT headset or handsfree,
which is not true for an overwhelming majority of people) and this
compromises privacy in a big way…no one wants people nearby snooping
in on their conversations.
Would love to hear your thoughts on why it hasn't taken off yet?
I will make a post about the responses I receive and will publish them
in a few weeks for all to see (names are anonymous)
Im curious if anyone has come across any recent research or trend projections regarding the future of mobile phone form / functionality / IxD, as a result of nano-technologies impacting the industry.
Sorta along the lines of what Nokia is projecting in 5-7 years with Morph.
Apologies if this is already an ancient line of discussion here...

I am working on designing a mobile application, and I am trying to spark
some inspiration from good designs by previous designers - does anyone know
where I can find a gallery of cool, good looking mobile UI concepts, even if
wildly unrealistic? I'm just trying to get out of the paradigm I've become
I'd like to donate fonts to anyone who are working on mobile phone UI's, but
I don't know if it is legal.
A while ago I made a two font sets, the Nokia Series 40 and the Nokia Series
60. These are the non-anti aliased fonts used in J2ME applications.
The font sets were recreated by me (using FontLab) and I have been using
them to create pixel-correct user interfaces for for the small and medium
size screens. (The new anti aliased fonts for large screens are available
Does anyone know if it is legal to distribute these?
I am embarking on a Mobile/Cell Phone application UI/IA/IXD project,
and as I am new to the mobile market (from the design side, anyway),
I was wondering if any of the mobile-oriented UI/IXD peeps here have
a set of standards, or can point be to some resources for such.
Things I am curious about -
Font Handling - is the a list of "phone safe" fonts ?
State Handling (off, over, down)
and really any kind of "general" pointers Mobile-experienced
designers can give me would be swell.
