Nokia 3D Communicator tipped in dual-display phone/tablet patent app

Nokia is exploring a dual-screen clamshell smartphone design that, like the Nintendo 3DS, would have both 2D and 3D displays. According to a patent application by the company, titled "Autostereoscopic Rendering and Display Apparatus", the smartphone would have a glasses-free 3D display on its top panel and a regular 2D display underneath. A dual-camera array would be used to track eye position, creating an interactive 3D UI that could be controlled either via touching the bottom display (as on the 3DS) or via finger-tracking in 3D space.

Nokia N950 MeeGo phone named: “very elegant hardware” says CTO [Video]

Nokia CTO Rich Green has seemingly named the company's first MeeGo device, the Nokia N950, set to launch later in 2011. Speaking at Nokia's Developer Day keynote last week, My Nokia Blog caught Green on camera suggesting that coders "should look at this as the successor to the N900, the N950." The name differs from Nokia's current nomenclature scheme, but follows directly from the Maemo-based N900 launched back in 2009.
