The Era Of The Thinking Phone?
Aiming to kickstart a generation of intelligent mobile devices, Nokia Situations aims to define how you want your phone to behave in different situations.
Nokia has introduced a cellphone app that could usher in a new wave of “thinking” phones: Nokia Situations essentially transforms a phone depending on the situation or location of its user. While still in an experimental phase, Nokia Situations aims to “define how you want your phone to behave in different situations.”
The Nokia Blog explains:
We have created an experimental application called Nokia Situations which you can use to define how you want your phone to behave in different situations, like “In a meeting”, “Sleeping”, or “Playing with the kids”. With the application running in the background, your device automatically senses the situation you are in (e.g. based on time, day, location, available networks) and adapts to it according to your preferences.
