Every year I get more amazed with the new releases of smart phones.
I remember when the only phone I knew was the Nokia 3310. I remember when everyone crowded around me at school as I had the first colour phone in my class. I remember when the adverts introduced the first phone with a camera, and how my Dad told me 'they'd never catch on'. You can now get phones what are fully functioning laptops, satnav’s and personal organisers. Surely the phone companies can't fit anything more into a phone this year??
I have been looking at this years new releases, and to tell the truth, I’m pretty amazed.

A few of my favourites are:

The Crystal Phone

This phone is due to bee released in early 2012, the battery and electronics have been shrunk to microscopic size, whilst the phone itself can change to any colour you like. No other information has been given.

NTT docomo SH-04B

A woman’s dream: A phone, in the shape of a chocolate bar.

Yes this phone seems to have all the essentials a woman needs. This stylish phone features a 8mp camera, 3G and is even water resistant! It truly does seem too good to be true.

On showing a friend a phone, they replied ‘I wouldn’t buy it, It’d make me too hungry’.
The only down side the phone has is its name; how could a phone this amazing be named so poorly?

The Puma Phone

The Puma phone has really impressed me.

It has a solar panel on the back of the phone which charges the device, it comes with high speed internet, a 3.2mp camera and sporty add on’s such as a pedometer –and it doesn’t look too bad either.

NTT docomo Touch Wood

This phone looks amazing! With its unique shape and real wood back, you will truely have a one of a kind phone. Each one is different as each wood back has different grain patterns and colourings. It looks amazing, but as of yet no one outside the company has been able to test it to see if it’s any good...

NTT docomo Separable Phone

This seperable phone is the worlds first ever fully functioning seperable phone.
It splits into two parts, meaning it can be used for multiple functions such as a game controller, a remote control for its camera or electronic projector or a keypad for typing notes whilst on the phone.

Its the ultimate multi tasking gadget out there!

Sonim XP2 Spirt

Ok, so compared to the others it’s your average phone, a 3MP camera, 3G, and Fm Radio and LED flash.

However, the Spirit will live through 30 minutes underwater, survive temperatures from -20 to 55 degrees Celsius and still show your latest text message on its tough scratchproof 2" screen made from 1.5mm thick Gorilla Glass. It can even handle shocks and vibrations up to 4G! Now, that is impressive!
Samsung Beam
No, that isn’t a camera, that is, in fact, a pico projector. The Pico Projector will 'beam' out video’s for up to three hours.

It comes with a 8MP camera, 3.7’’ AMOLED screen and 720p video recording. It’s not bad for a Korean phone!

Samsung Diva Folder

The ‘Diva’ is specifically aimed at the female market with its quilted black cover and girly themes. However, i can't really picture Victoria Beckham with one; more Lady Sov don't you think?

After looking at this years compared to my own, i feel abit gutted i spent £70 on a LG last week which will look like it's from the stone age in a few months time.

Technology is moving so fast now-a-days, I wonder what 2011 will bring us?


  1. Everything about this topic is very interesting love to no whats coming up in the future with technology its always been a interesting subject and relates to people all over the world. The new technology going into phones is wild!!

  2. By 2012 it has been rumoured that your phone will be able to control the lights in your home, heating and bath! I can't wait to see whats coming next.
    Thanks for commenting :)

  3. The iphone already unlocks your car alarm system so i dont see why they wouldn't be able to invent a the system you have talked about. however,I think there will be big complications in controlling your lights as it would cost quite abit of money as it will invovle re-wiring most of the house with new technology so i dont think it will happen by 2012 maybe by 2020?

  4. Aparently they wont need to re-wire any houses as the phone will connect to a blue tooth device in the light switches, so all what will need to be changed is the light swicthes. I think it is possible for technology to add this device, many household appliences are controlled by a remote control-this could therefor be replaced by your phone (think of universal remotes for example).

  5. That's what i was trying to say in my previous comment.It could be possible that some people may not be able to afford this product for few years because it will be at sky high price ranges as it is new technology. The reason i say it will come out in 2020 instead of 2012 is because they will have technical problems with using bluetooth devices in a switch as it could cause next doors nebiours light to turn off and on so they will have to come up with a way so it does not effect other peoples lights and other accessorise the phone controls.

  6. New technology seems to be expensive, take game consoles for example!
    I think they will 'pair' the bluetooth device in the phone to the house appliences, which is simular to data transferes between phones we have now.
    Remote controls for TVs don't seem to have a problem?

  7. yes but look how long consoles have taken to come down in price with there highly propulare product prices didn't fall fast at all yeah pairing the device can work but they will all have to be pair with there own personal password so other people will not be able to control thing in there house the reason remote control tv don't seem to have a problem is because each tv is set with there own fequency for the remote to work on that tv

  8. True, it does take time for the prices to fall, but the product is still set to come out in 2012.
    I see what you mean, the system will have to be set up like wireless interent, security protected and so forth.

  9. Could they not use a frequency remote simular to a Tv remote then?

  10. no don't forget that they also sell universal remotes which could tune to most frequencys which means they could be able to tune into other peoples

  11. I think you're being abit saftey conscious. Universal remotes work on all TV's, so the problem could exist now -yet it doesn't.
