3D movement recognition phone
Samsung continues to roll out the impressive new mobile phone technologies, in Korea at least. The SCH-S310 uses 3D motion detection as its user interface. Tracing a number in the air will dial the number on the phone. Shaking the phone twice will hang up a call. The phone is also an mp3 player, and the motion detection will work those functions too - moving the phone sharply to the right or left will take you to the next or previous music track. Since it's being released in Korea, the phone will have a 1.3 mp camera, mobile banking features, GPS, and music-on-demand.
The next versions of the 3D motion phone will have even more advanced features such as games controlled by movement of the phone instead of a joystick, and automatic adjustment of photos taken with a shaky hand.
Available in March in Korea, elsewhere unknown.
