Apple is not the only one creating innovative interfaces for mobile devices. Samsung is in the game too. As they should if they want to keep the market share for devices like Samsung Ultra Smart F520 or Samsung Ultra Smart F520.
Nothing really big or groundbreaking, nonetheless the idea described in Samsung patent application “Mobile communication terminal and method of the same for outputting short message” is quite interesting.
For all of us SMS fans it describes a simple way of improving text messaging experience:
Just take the phone number from the arrived text message, map it to the stored image of the sender and other recently received messages from him, create a new screen with pictures displaying continuous conversation.
Looks simple but very effective – this way you can quickly identify the sender, follow conversations with different persons just like in IM chat client and significantly reduce the number messages to the wrong recipients.
And it doesn’t need the latest Core 2 Duo chip or programming genius to be implemented. Expect for this feature to show up in new Samsung phones pretty soon.
