1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Spunky New Phone Actually Stands Up When a Call Comes In

    New Nokia phone standing up to new challenges!



    How cool is this?


    Nokia has an awesome new phone that actually stands up and comes to attention when a call comes in.


    The Nokia Kinetic has a curved base that shifts its weight and tilts up when somebody calls.


    There’s certainly a risk for this type of technology becoming a bother – but it will be quite hard to miss a call when your phone stands up and demands you take notice.


    The cool thing is – if you don’t want to take the call – you can tap the phone and it will sit back down.
    That fun feature could be a hit, even in business settings, but it will be a wait and see game to see if the public stands up to embrace this new technology.

    Very cool. It makes me wonder if you raise a red flag on the side of it will the postman come to pick up your messages for others. Walk into the room and if its standing on the table you know you had a missed call?

    See, I was wondering if you could still carry your phone in your front pocket or if you'd be too embarrassed to get calls.

    I guess i'm the only person who looks at this and asks "Why?"

    I mean, are we really at the point where we can't think of any USEFUL features to add to a device? This seems kind of dumb and can only raise the price of the device.....

    I think it's a cool idea, but not cool enough to have that ugly 'hump' on the back.

    I'll wait for the next model...it will look like this when it rings:

    dancedroid

    and I guess the Backflip could have used a fancy ring indicator too.

    +1 here. Give me features that have benefits, then I will take notice. Seems gimmicky to me. Will you be able to answer calls when this stops working.

    Why was this posted on droidforums anyways, just sayin'.
