Patent pair: SE puts radar in mobiles, Nokia plays with new designs

Darren Murph

We came across a pair of phone patents today so patently palatable that we couldn't help but dish 'em out together. First up is Sony Ericsson's bright idea to shove radar in cellphones. According to the application, the built-in technology could work hand-in-hand with the GPS module and camera to obtain a position, calculate distance to target, determine position / speed of said target using Doppler analysis and present the finalized information to the owner. Over on Nokia's side, the firm has apparently been working on a number of new designs and UI tweaks, even going so far as to draw up a handset with an integrated kickstand. Check out the links below if you're hungry for more where this came from.
