Nokia 888, the future cell phone?

Nokia 888
In September of this year, Tamer Nakisci won the Nokia Benelux Design Awards 2005 with his conceptual design Nokia 888. A personal mobile communication device which lets you be free and fun. It is light, simple and carefree. You can change its form according to your needs during the day. You dont have to carry it in your pocket or on your wrist. You can carry it anywhere, in anyform. You can roll it, bend it, put on your clothes like a clip. It also makes some form changes that makes it more ergonomical: i.e. when you want to talk on the phone, the body form turns into the form of the good old telephone. You can personalize these forms and record them. So it fits you the best in the way that you have chosen. Also e-motions let you send forms to other 888 users: i.e. you can send a heart shape to your girlfriend or a dancing figure to your friends to call them to the party tonight. This way you can talk without words. (Source: Yanko Design)

Because this design has such an emotional appeal, I was curious which background ideas existed behind the Nokia 888. I got in touch with the designer Tamer Nakisci
