Nokia unveils futuristic flexible phone

The world's largest mobile phone company, Nokia, has teamed up with the nanotechnology specialists at the Cambridge University to produce a phone that can be used as a keyboard or a bracelet.

A mockup of the device was unveiled at the Museum of Modern Art in New York with only rendered pictures of the not-so-gorgeous cell phone available.

Nokia has also announced that it will be working on integrating nanotechnology in its future mobile phones to allow them to be both flexible and stretchable.

Fully functional, commercial models of such phones could be on virtual shelves by 2015, says Betanews.

Because of the anorexic thickness of the phones, this technology could potentially find its way in everything from clothing to furniture or fashion accessories as well as shape changing on demand.

Nokia's flexible phone could possibly be used as an e-paper on demand.
