Okay, Touch screens arenâ€™t new, not even on phones. But wait: Thereâ€™s something different about the NeoNode N2. This fully touch-screen wireless phone is designed to work with sweeping gestures from your thumb and finger. This one-handed touch screen phone replaces the hunt-and-peck touch screen technique with a more ergonomic Infrared grid. The grid detects â€œsignatureâ€ motions of the thumb and finger, and translates these motions into commands.
Touchscreen Smartphone: The Grid is a good Thing
This is good because it (theoretically) does away with your typical stylus, the way-too-small plastic stick you use to navigate your mobile device. NeoNode hopes to change this, and thereâ€™s even more good news: The N2 is scheduled for release this year, and will be offered direct to market. That means you wonâ€™t have to put up with any carrierâ€™s nonsense. No contracts, no worries! Unless, that is, youâ€™re missing a thumb. Sr. Editor Lonny Paul will introduce you to the Neonode N2 straight from the halls of CES 2008 is Las Vegas! Check it out.
