Nokia 'Design by Community' phone is almost ready Nokia, which announced two months ago it was beginning a "Design by Community" project to create a new phone, has said this week that the project is almost completed, with fans finishing voting on what they want the most in the new smartphone device.
By the end of the month, Nokia designers will have turned out some mockups of the upcoming device.

UnwiredView says fans voted and decided that the phone would be the following: "10mm thin monoblock made out of aluminum. Its features should include: a 4 inch capacitive touchscreen display, open source operating system, unlimited multitasking, Wi-Fi 802.11 n/b/g, USB 3.0, HDMI, Dolby surround sound, and an 8MP camera with 4X optical zoom, dual LED and Xenon flash, and HD video recording."

The smartphone should also have "DbC OS 1 temperature and location sensors" which would monitor your local conditions at all times.

The device is expected to include multiple OS support as well, likely with Symbian^4 and MeeGo.

I don't think that they explained everything very well to the research group...there is no way that this device will do anything to max out usb 2.0; but it has 3.0? Also, HDMI is great and all...but without specifics, I would assume 480P only.

Kind of reminds me of that Simpsons episode where Homer designs the car for his rich brother.
