Nokia hopes to bless mobiles with HD recording capability

We've already seen a multimedia processor that can deliver the HD goods to our cellphones, but Nokia is looking beyond the display and hoping to cram HD recording abilities in, too. According to Nokia's Chief Technology Officer Tero Ojanpera, HD recording on a handset "is coming," and he noted that "technically, it is just a couple of years away." Analyst Alan Brown of research firm Gartner chimed in to say that some eight- to ten-percent of all cellphones could actually have HD video capabilities by 2010 or 2011, but he also suggested that the chances of those percentages growing larger than that within the aforementioned timeframe were slim. Still, we can't help but be intrigued by the possibility, but hopefully Nokia (and the rest) will learn a thing or two from the shortfalls exposed in the diminutive pistol-grip HD camcorder segment.
