The Nokia Morph is the codename for future smartphones from Finnish manufacturer Nokia featuring flexible and stretchable OLED displays. These displays can be folded easily and can fit easily in day to day life. An unfolded larger design could display more information and can also incorporate input devices like keyboard & touch pads. Nanotechnology makes these flexible displays remarkably strong. Even integrated electronics, from interconnectors to sensors could share these flexible properties. Nanotechnology can also be used to create self-cleaning surfaces on next generation smartphones that will naturally repel water, dirt and even fingerprints from the screens. With the use of nano technology in future screen displays will become a natural source of energy that harvest solar power. In addition to that new high energy density storage materials allow batteries to become smaller and thinner. These batteries will charge quicker and will endure more charge cycle than current generation batteries.

The next generation smartphones from Nokia can be worn as watch and can also be folded into any shape you desired. Nokia Morph will feature a 5-inch flexible displays and will be powered by quad core processors. There is no official confirmation but Nokia Morph will be launched during second half of 2014. Samsung is also working on flexible displays and will incorporate the technology in its future smartphones. Stay tuned for more updates or follow @harrym20 on Twitter.

Update : According to a new patent from Nokia, future Windows Phone smartphones would detect mood by looking at the elements such as typing speed, typing pressure, the use of the back space and even an external device. Once a mood is identified, the front facing camera may then take a picture which can later be used as customize emotions.

Nokia Innovation Patent

We are known to represent emotions in text-based messages, such as short message service (SMS) messages, emails, blogs and such like, using emoticons. These are constructed from two or more ASCII characters, and often represent a human face having a certain expression. Emoticons can be inserted into text by a user entering the relevant sequence of ASCII characters. With some mobile devices, emoticons can be selected from a menu and then inserted into text.

A first aspect of the invention provides a method comprising:

monitoring inputs to a device from a user;
using the user inputs to track an emotional condition of the user;
detecting a change in the tracked emotional condition of the user; and
in response to detecting the change, using a camera to capture an image of the user and inserting the image into a content item.

Detecting a change in the tracked emotional condition of the user may comprise determining that there has been a change in the emotional condition of the user.

The camera may be a front camera of the device.

[0010] The method may comprise communicating the content item from the device to a remote apparatus.

Using the user inputs to track an emotional condition of the user may comprise tracking a typing speed of the user and detecting a change in the tracked emotional condition of the user may comprise detecting a change in typing speed.

[0012] Using the user inputs to track an emotional condition of the user may comprise detecting a frequency of use of a backspace or delete function and detecting a change in the tracked emotional condition of the user may comprise detecting an increase in the frequency of use of a backspace or delete function.

[0013] Using the user inputs to track an emotional condition of the user may comprise monitoring a typing pressure of the user and detecting a change in the tracked emotional condition of the user may comprise detecting a change in average typing pressure. Detecting a change in the tracked emotional condition of the user may comprises determining that there has been a change in typing speed.

[0014] Using the user inputs to track an emotional condition of the user may comprise monitoring a physiological parameter of the user and detecting a change in the tracked emotional condition of the user may comprises detecting a change in the physiological parameter. Detecting a change in the tracked emotional condition of the user may comprises determining that there has been a change in the physiological parameter.

[0015] Using the user inputs to track an emotional condition of the user and to detect a change in the tracked emotional condition of the user may comprise detecting the typing by the user of plural characters that together constitute an emoticon. Detecting a change in the tracked emotional condition of the user may comprise determining that a user has typed plural characters that together constitute an emoticon.
