Screen Shot 2013-03-02 at 10.56.16Some key Nokia execs have spoken with SlashGear on the subject of future Nokia devices. Of course, they can’t be specific enough to actually talk about upcoming products but it’s somewhat of an interesting read.

Ahtisaari says he reckons there’s room for ‘specialised devices’ but also more ‘complex phones’.

I’m taking this as possibly super dedicated cameras or tablets?

I think there’ll be room for more and more dedicated devices that do a few things really well again

And that is slightly a contrarian view, but I think what we’ll see is increasing complexity and ability… you can either shortcut through the environment, but this means also space for dedicated devices that do a few things really well. Yes, a phone, but other functionalities too.

You’ll see many examples and images in the article of past Nokia concepts that are being made reality by other manufacturers. Execution is key and Nokia isn’t the most well known for executing well.

Pannenbecker was also coy, presenting the conventional smartphone idea but indicating Nokia may have other approaches.

“For us as designers. Because ultimately again it comes to better problems. This is more what we think a smartphone is supposed to be [holds up phone], but I think obviously there’s other ways of doing that.

The heads up mantra first hinted about prior to the N9 launch is very pervasive throughout the article. Nokia’s keen on making more human to human contact with technology enabling consumers rather than making them into ‘robots’.

Cheers jiipee for the tip!
