We had a chance to test the Nokia E72 Camera during NokiaWorld. All E71 users might really embrace the quality of photos coming from the E72 ‘s 5MP Camera.Even though the Cam does not feature Carl Zeiss optics, it does a great job when compared to the E71.
The E72 is a cool upgrade to the E71 and one of the most important features of the E72 is the Optical Navikey which makes scrolling a lot easier. What’s more cool is that you can use the Navikey to focus the camera. This short video was shot last week when we had a chance to interact with Product Manager of the phone Mika
This innovative concept introduced at Nokia World ’09 allows to you to experience immersion and effortless navigation in an Augmented Reality environment. New types of interactions involving near-to-eye displays, gaze direction tracking, 3D audio, 3D video, gesture and touch. Through these new types of social linkages people will be connected in innovative ways between the physical and digital worlds.
With Mixed Reality, we would no longer face the ambiguity of having to choose between either the physical world or the virtual world at a single point of time. We could enjoy a virtual chat or to exchange any file with your friends/family when we are outside. Also, we could catch up with the latest updates/tweets/messages from our friends if we are travelling anywhere and still reply to them.
This might also help in building physical connections as well. If a virtual friend/acquaintance is physically close to us, his picture would pop up and start following him as he moves around.
Since its based upon eye movement, Mixed Reality would also make our presence on the internet a much more intuitive experience. When your eyelids are closed and doesn’t reopen for a period of time, the system detects it and goes either offline or into sleep mode automatically and hence would not disturb you while sleeping. It would later retrieve your offline messages when you are awake again, irrespective of the time period.
What do you think about this new concept? Do you think it will revolutionize the way we live and interact now? Do Pass on your comments.

I recently had an interesting discussion with Henri Moissinac of Facebook Mobile about their Mobile Strategy , their growth in the mobile space and their plans for one of the largest markets in the World – India.
Nokia is the largest handset manufacturer in the world and Facebook is currently the largest social networking site. The partnership between Facebook and Nokia started with Nokia’s popular devices Nokia 5800 and Nokia N97 and the partnership has been quite fruitful till now, with applications and home screen widgets released for Nokia 5800 and N97. That being said, the future possibilities seem endless and quite promising with the recent announcement of the Lifecasting application at Nokia World which ushers in a lot of excitement for the users.
