Nokia Windows Phone 8.1 device to include '3D Touch' features According to leaking pro @evleaks, Nokia's upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 device will include '3D Touch' features.
The source says the company is actually planning two phones, codenamed 'Goldfinger' and 'Moneypenny,' with Gold being the flagship.

3D Touch, which Nokia has been working on for quite some time, uses the hardware sensors "to detect interactions that are off-the-glass."

Supposedly, the new features will make use of off-glass gestures above and to the side of the device. According to the source, the new gestures "currently under consideration include scrolling and flipping to let Windows Phone 8.1 users navigate around a phone without touching the screen."

Windows Phone 8.1 is currently under development and should be launched in time for the Mobile World Congress 2014 in February.

Yeah.......this is gonna be a techie's worst nightmare as everyone is going to need help fixing problems with device while buttons are pushed and sliders slid from pulling in/out of pocket.

Lame! "3D Touch" is about as useful and relevant as "3D tv" and the once-was "4D tv/movies"
