Nokia illustrates dry patent with bizarre concept phone

Chris Ziegler

Okay, straight up, this patent is pretty meaningless to us; it details some mumbo jumbo about loading a user interface onto a device via an expansion card (wireless is specifically mentioned, though it doesn't seem specific to that). That in itself is a little too boring to bother noting, at least until it materializes into a cool feature on a device we can actually purchase. What does catch one's eye, though, is the weird phone thingy Nokia uses to illustrate the patent. Seriously, what is this -- a Samsung UpStage embedded in the center of a L'Amour? Can this please never be produced, Nokia? Promise?
