Nokia fans want a 4 inch smartphone with multiple OS support
Announced by Nokia almost two months ago, the Design by Community project is almost finished. Nokia fans had to vote for what features and characteristics they’d want in their dream Nokia smartphone. The voting is now closed, and a team of Nokia designers will make some sketches that will be turned into a concept device later this month.
Fans have voted at Nokia Conversations that the final device should be a 10mm thin monoblock made out of aluminum. Its features should include: a 4 inch capacitive touchscreen display, open source operating system, unlimited multitasking, Wi-Fi 802.11 n/b/g, USB 3.0, HDMI, Dolby surround sound, and an 8MP camera with 4X optical zoom, dual LED and Xenon flash, and HD video recording.
The handset should also have “DbC OS 1 temperature and location sensors so your device constantly monitors your whereabouts and the local conditions.”
Everything here seems doable, including the multiple OS support – Nokia could easily make a phone to support both Symbian and MeeGo.
Anyway, until a team of Nokia designers finishes the concept device, we’ve made a quick mock-up of what the handset might look like:

Nokia should present its own concept before the end of May, so let’s wait and see what they have to show us. Meanwhile, Nokia will be in search of a name for the concept phone.
