I spent some time on the NTT DoCoMo stand today. It’s always fun to drool over the amazing devices and services they have over in Japan. Though it’s then depressing to realise that we currently miss out on much of that stuff here in Europe. (Why I can’t I do contactless payments with my phone yet, dammit!) Here are some photos of things that caught my attention…

A phone together with objects that presumably inspired its design:

And of course, who can forget the classic waterproof phone demo:

Exclusive: Nokia N00

There I was minding my own business on the Nokia Siemens Networks stand looking a DVB-H demo when I spotted this:

 Nokia N00

This couldn’t possibly be a prototype N96 from when they hadn’t decided what the final model number would be. No, definitely not. The only logical explanation is that it’s a Nokia device from the future when they’ve exhausted  all 2 digit numbers from N01 to N99 that has been sent back in time through a random wormhole and, purely by coincidence, happens to look exactly like an N96. Yes, that’s got to be it.
