Nokia's Principal Scientist at the Nokia Research Center in Cambridge uses a Nokia Lumia 710 to demonstrate the Nokia nanotechnology behind a Superhydrophobic stain-resistant phone that repels water like a lily pad.
Nokia Research Center has fueled the creation and development of the mobile industry we all enjoy today, and has contributed to a wide spectrum of ground-breaking innovations which have shaped the wireless world.
This short retrospective showcases a few of the contributions coming from NRC, in a fun narrative with the people Nokia has spent decades connecting and inspiring.
Nokia HumanForm was created in a joint effort to translate the most promising new nanotechnologies into meaningful user experiences, in order to create real devices and set goals for future product portfolios.
This is the new Nokia GEM concept device. What if *every* part of your next phone was a touchscreen?

CNetTV posted a video of a Nokia Research Center prototype being demoed at Nokia World in London. The device is controlled by how it's flexed.
AMR-WB (Adaptive Multi-Rate Wideband) speech codec is a standard that was largely developed by Nokia Research Center. It is a speech codec, which means it captures your voice, compresses it and transmits it wirelessly over the network. Compared to earlier technologies, it can efficiently capture and transmit a much larger audio bandwidth, which makes your voice sound very natural on the other end.
