The iPhone is dead!

neonoden22

I have just been reading up on the Neonode phone and must say I am impressed. I know Neonode has had a phone previously – but this is a new model. The Neonode N1.

This phone has all the finger gestures you want but it is designed for one handed use not like the iPhone where you need one to hold the phone and one to use it. Remember it’s a phone first, one handed use is, for me, a must! By the way, it is not a touch screen, it’s their patented screen technology with light beams forming an invisible grid over the screen and the location of your finger is detected when the beams are crossed.

I have read that it will be a lot cheaper than an iPhone and not be locked into a contract. The cheaper price is because memory is via miniSD cards, so at the moment 8GB is the max. You will want the memory because it also comes with a client application, a bit like iTunes, that downloads music from free sources as well as using your own music. That plus video – btw I read 16 hours of video playback, a bit hard to believe.

Size wise, as you can see, it’s more phone like than the iPhone. Thank goodness for that, I don’t like the big PDA sized phones.

Another biggy…it will be open for other companies applications, not like Apples closed system.

    Thanks for the visit. Looks as though you would be a person who appreciates IE and FF “stuff!” Thanks for this “phone” info. Sorry about the rest of the site being disconnected. Maybe you’ll be back some time – should be back by the middle of next week.

    Also see that you’ve actually made this theme!! Excellent – Something that would be a download for me since it includes top tabs! You might check my theme distruction:

    Great stuff. I consider SD memory to actually be a *benefit*, even though the current max puts us at less than the iPhone. Presumably, I can store applications (or data for applications) on the SD card as well, which is also not possible on the iPhone.

    I’m curious to know more about that screen technology – looks interesting.
