It stands up!

Design student Jeremy Innes-Hopkins has created a truly unique concept smartphone. The Nokia Kinetic has the fantastic ability to stand up when it receives a call. The device would pack an electromagnet in its thickened butt that shifts in order to make the thing stand on end. A simple tap sits it down again.

This is cool enough, but the Kinetic has another neat feature. The fat rear is used to pack the capture button for the camera, which allows you to point and shoot this thing in the same way you would a traditional digital camera. Obviously, the Kinetic itself will never be a real product, but if Nokia (or someone else) likes the idea enough, we could see it adopted for a production device.

Jeremy, you've got my best wishes for a successful career in the smartphone industry. If you wouldn't mind, I'd love a smartphone with a sliding QWERTY keyboard and a combination bottle opener / lighter. Thanks!
