First things first, we know this is a viral marketing video for Nova Scotia, but it’s still slick and shows a really nice mobile phone interface. Cocking a sly snook at Apple, the Pomegranate cellphone is billed as the ultimate mobile phone. An inverted tear-drop shape, the three-panel handset fans open to show dual touchscreens and – remember, it’s a joke – a coffee pod holder.
Most of the features are what you’d normally find in a smartphone: email, browser, GPS navigation and media player. Of course, the coffee maker is somewhat unusual, and the mobile high-definition projector not yet feasible with pico-projector technology.
But the hardware isn’t the issue here. I want this GUI on Windows Mobile; frankly, anything would be better than the interface they have now. Simple, clean, fruit-flavored, it’s brilliant.
