Nokia's Explore and Share concept uses super fast, mystery wireless
The Nokia Research Center has demoed a new wireless data transfer concept. The so-called, Explore and Share concept starts by placing an N900 onto a "writer" that's tethered to a PC at a retail store. At that point, the PC recognizes the handset and serves up a number of options to the purchaser. For the purposes of the demo, an unnamed Finn selects an album that downloads to the handset in less than 10 seconds. While an interesting demo, practical uses in a retail situation seem limited.
