We’ve all done this, scratched the paint off a brand new phone or gadget. It hurts and it stings, but usually over time we ignore it and forget about it because it most cases not much can be done then to put on a protective case. Nissan however, who recently invented a new “Scratch Shield” clearcoat paint has announced that they will be applying their new technology on DoCoMo mobile phones. This special paint has been said to be able to heal itself when damaged.
Is it a new technology or is it just scientists coming with new ways to apply chemicals? We’re not in the most suitable position to criticise this. What we do know is this clearcoat “uses a special top layer of highly elastic resin that gives the coating a ‘flexibility’ that reportedly means that it can prevent or ‘heal’ 80% of surface marks.”
The folks at Engadget CN have received the new 32GB version, iPhone 3G S in black. The quick gallery below shows some hands on treatment using the new built in compass as well as the voice control. Yes, the back of the iPhone 3G S is still very glossy unfortunately, making it highly prone to scratches and fingerprints. I wouldn’t put off the thought of an iPhone 3G S with matte finish though, discussions on iPhonehacks regarding this are still very convincing.
This year’s Mobile World Congress hasn’t been a massive event for Nokia, but they have now unveiled the next and upcoming N-Series flagship. The new Nokia N86 is a slider phone featuring an 8 megapixal camera with Carl Zeiss Tessar lens, autofocus, fast mechanical shutter that should reduce motion blur and a dual-LED flash. Importantly, photos can be geotagged due to the integrated GPS. It also has a 8GB internal memory with a TV-out and a microSD slot. It has a numeric keypad with t9ers, good news for txters. Other highlights of the Symbian S60 phone include a 2.6-inch, scratch-resistant OLED display, stereo Bluetooth support, Wi-Fi, e-mail support, an FM transmitter, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Overall, it is a nice and easy to use phone. Check out our gallery for more pictures of this phone.
