We have yet to see a major revolution in the smartphone industry for several years. Nokia is looking to change all that with an upcoming, unannounced device.

It has been some time since we have heard the term “iPhone Killer” but it looks like Nokia is throwing around a similar idea, as it claims it has a revolutionary product in the works that will make other smartphones seem dated.

The strong words come from a Nokia executive, who spoke with Finnish newspaper Kauppalehti (via BGR). Ahtisaari Optiossa held nothing back in his commentary, saying that the iPhone is “poorly designed” and that “the road from the kitchen into the dining room is always through the front door.”

Little was revealed about the upcoming handset but Ahtisarri was raising expectations at every turn, suggesting that the device will apparently have a breakthrough technology that will revolutionize the user experience. These are words that are not used lightly within the industry and time will be the true test to see if the new product changes the smartphone market.

While little was revealed about the upcoming device, Ahtisarri was clearly making bold predictions about its success and has high hopes that it will change the way interact with our phones. While we don’t know when the device will break cover, we can only hope that it will come soon to help continue the growth of Windows Phone.

I don't believe in Nokia anynmore. About 15 years ago, they were the world no 1 mobile phone manufacturer. Look at them now. While struggling with their competitors they start with the Windows Phone, in which nobody believes except themselves. Android and the Apple platform have proven to be the major platforms.This statement of their CEO is a strange way of making PR for his business.Nokia, think again and create a phone which WE want, instead of creating phones nobody wants.

I'll just quote myself:

Note to Nokia: You don't see Samsung making loads of statements, as they are too busy working on there technology. Get the hint?

Nokia has filed a patent for "a material attachable to skin" that will be able to detect a magnetic field and transfer a perceivable stimulus to the skin.

In the future, people could sport magnetic tattoos that vibrate when they get an alert on their phones.

At least, that's Nokia's vision of the future. The company has filed a patent for "a material attachable to skin, the material capable of detecting a magnetic field and transferring a perceivable stimulus to the skin, wherein the perceivable stimulus relates to the magnetic field."

According to tech writer Jaime Condliffe, that means vibrating tattoos.

"Basically, that means a magnetic field would cause a tattoo to vibrate in a specific way. The tattoos, the patent suggests, would have to use 'ink enriched by ferromagnetic or paramagnetic compounds' -- not too tricky, given that tattoos already contain metallic compounds," he wrote on the blog Gizmodo. "Then, different magnetic fields could be used to provide different sensations, allowing the tatt-wearer to discern between different callers, or different kinds of alerts."

Wall Street Journal tech reporter Ben Rooney compared it to ring tones.

"Nokia's thinking is that in much the same way that you can have different ring tones for different callers, so too a future phone could emit a different magnetic field depending who is calling, or if your battery is running low, or you receive an SMS, for example," he wrote.
