Nokia kinetics

Nokia wants patent on self-regenerating phone batteries, piezoelectrics and much magic involved — Engadget., quoting Symbian-Freak

It seems Nokia has figured out to port the watches’ kinetic technology into its phones. This means you will be able to recharge the phone while walking, as you do now with your watch.

I’ve been using smartphones since first S60 and I can tell you these toys are really power greedy!

I can’t help imagining people running their buts in the afternoons in order to replenish the battery for an important call or email…

    The picture has absolutely nothing related to Nokia; but I thought it’d be great to show somebody running… like this. I’ve picked it up, for marketing purposes exclusively. Here is another instance. Still running, so still related to the topic. Kind of…

    Seriously, I don’t know if this picture was chosen by Nokia for this campaign or if it is some kind of joke…
    You can’t put that hot girl to sell your product! One look at the pic and you’ll forget what were you looking for in the first place (at least that happened to me :P)

    Kenetic recharging would be awesome but they need to miniturise the technology a bit. It’s not practical to run around with something that large strapped to your chest. You’ll knock yourself out.
