Kinetic concept phone should make Nokia sit up

Kinetic concept phone should make Nokia sit up You listening, Nokia? The Kinetic probably won’t sell in volumes, but at least it could get users talking about your phones again. Brainchild of London-based designer Jeremy Innes-Hopkins, the Kinetic was conjured up as a client project for his final-year stint at the Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design. The concept, which is noticeably bottom-heavy, has an electromagnet built into the base that props the phone up whenever there’s an incoming call or alarm. To dismiss these event alerts, simply push the handset back down. Jeremy told Engadget that the top half of the prototype is only 8mm thick, while the girth of the cylindrical base measures 18mm. The latter also doubles as a handgrip for taking pictures using the camera in landscape mode. While I’m not convinced that it’d be comfortable holding the Kinetic next to the ear, I’d still go for this concept over the spinning Nokia X5.
