Take a look at Seabird showcase in 3D

It’s just a prototype for now … but what a prototype! Conceived by Billy May in early 2009, the Seabird is an Open Web Concept Phone.

Take a look at -what we call – the most interesting / beautiful / smart / outstanding mobile phone concept we’ve seen so far! This is Seabird in their own words:

The Mozilla Seabird, part of the Mozilla Labs’ Concept Series, is an experiment in how users might interact with their mobile content as devices and technology advances.

The Seabird introduces a few possibilities into how user interaction might evolve with the advancing motion capture and projector driven innovation in the market.

First out, the Seabird imagines how a multiple use dongle might augment the crowded gestural interface with greater precision and direct manipulation of content in 3D space.

With mobile phone companies such as Samsung, LG and Motorola moving towards display applications for projectors, the technology remains open for expanding user interaction and input at the same time.

The Seabird, on just a flat surface, enables netbook-quality interaction by working with the projector’s angular distortion to deliver interface, rather than content. With the benefit of a dock, each projector works independently and delivers laptop levels of efficiency.

The form development took its cues from various aerodynamic, avian and decidedly feminine forms. Its erect posture intends a sense of poise while its supine conformity to the hand reconciles that with the user’s desire for digital control.

The curvature of the back also serves a functional role in elevating the projector lens elements when lying flat.

Motorola ally with Verizon to win Apple

There were rumors saying that the Finnish manufacturer, Nokia, is planning to launch a tablet this year.

Motorola’s new product will also enable users to watch TV, according to Financial Times.

The new Tablet PC will have a 10-inch screen, will use the Google Android operating system and users could access programs like Adobe Flash.

Thanks to the TV broadcast application, Verizon customers could use FiOS service.

The new product will be thinner and lighter than iPad, sources say, quoted by Financial Times. Sources haven’t disclosed however, information about Motorola’s new Tablet PC’s name.

Although both Verizon and Motorola’s officials haven’t made any comments yet, in the past, Motorola discussed for several times the possibility of launching a new product to compete iPad.

Rumor say that Motorola will announce two new Android phones next week

Rumor has it that Motorola will be releasing in 2010 two Android phones on the C.E.S.

According to Global Equities Research analyst, Trip Chowdhry, Motorola “may announce” two new Android phones, one on AT&T, the second on Verizon. Both phones will have, according to him, OLED screens and a slide-out QWERTY for the AT&T model, with the same handset shunning MOTOBLUR in favor of the Google Experiences interface.
Moreover, rumors say that the Backflip / Enzo pictures we have seen recently could be the AT& T model.
