While Nokia’s new flagship Windows Phone, the Lumia 900, has yet to be released, it seems that there are talks of what we will be able to expect from future Nokia Lumia phones. This is thanks to Marko Antissari, Nokia’s head of design, who recently told the Guardian what Nokia is currently up to with their future Lumia handsets.
According to Marko, the Finnish handset manufacturer is currently working together with Microsoft to coordinate software details, such as tile colors, to match hardware accessories. It might seem rather trivial when you think about it, but accessories that match not just the color of the phone, but also the software could have huge implications as far as aesthetics are concerned. Marko may have also indicated that future Lumia phones may feature NFC capabilities along with possible wireless charging.
“If you can take away a moving part and make it [the phone] more beautiful in the placement of the components, we’ll do it, so that’s something where we can certainly keep improving,” Ahtisaari told the Guardian. “Take it to the extreme, and why are there any connectors?”
The use of NFC has been hinted by Microsoft in the past as a possibility they’re exploring, and which Nokia plans to use to pair accessories with the phone simply by tapping them together. On top of that, it seems that future Lumia phones will no longer have the flimsy flip-up plastic tab that covers the micro-USB port, which apparently is one of the gripes that some reviewers had with the Nokia Lumia 800 (check out our review here).
So what do you guys think? An NFC-capable, color coordinated, wireless charging Nokia Lumia Windows Phone device – does that sound like a phone you could see yourself purchasing in the future?
