    Apologies if I missed this being posted elsewhere.

    Nokia have just unveiled their incredible nanotech phone concept built in partnership with the University of Cambridge.

    Nokia have said they estimate that most of the features will be production-ready in 7 years or so; they made a prototype to take to the MoMA exhibition, but I'm not sure how many features were ready to go at that point.

    This is one chunk of the future that really can't come fast enough for me.

    Production ready in 7 years?

    So, the US will get it around 2025 or so?

    If you're lucky, yeah. Being European does have the odd advantage... :p

    I remember reading about nano-circuitry a while back, but holy fuck.

    We can't be only seven years away from that, can we?

    They did say it was only 7 years away from most of the features being production-ready, and that it'd be at the high-end initially. It'll be years more before a kid will get a Nokia like that for his birthday.

    that looks fantastic.

    and yeah, will be maybe 20 years before this is a common product? by then we'll be getting all excited about the new implanted phones and the internet being connected directly to the brain...
