3GSM: Neonode N2 – 70g iPhone With Multi-touch

Uber-portable, sexy touch screen goodness that does almost everything an iPhone can... in half the size.

So we’ve had the iPhone, the LG Prada ‘fashion iPhone’, the Samsung F700/F520 ‘smart iPhone’ and now the Neonode N2 ‘pocket iPhone’.

Like the others the N2 sports a touchscreen which near fills the front of the handset and though it only measures two inches (176 x 220) that is proportionately vast for its teeny 47 x 77 x 14.7mm dimensions and 70g weight.

Perhaps just as interesting as the display however is the interface: a proprietary offering from Neonode itself which uses touch ‘gestures’. Unsurprisingly this system is extremely similar to Apple’s iPhone ‘Multi-touch’ input method where commands are issued from finger strokes around the screen not just presses.

On a side note – considering the device looks to run on Windows Mobile (it employs Microsoft’s ActiveSync, Calendar and Address Book software) – it appears Microsoft based devices will be compatible with such interface upgrades. Patch for my HTC TyTN anyone?

Getting back to the N2 this ultra portable handset still crams in the features with a 2MP camera, audio and video codec support and four hours talk time, 200 hours standby.

Predictably there’s no release date yet for the N2 but if Apple’s lawyers don’t get it first sign me up for one.

”’Update:”’ Thanks to hyper vigilant reader Richard we now know the N2 will be arriving May. He also points out, rather interestingly, that the Neonode N1 also had a touchscreen and launched in 2004 so eat that Apple legal team. Personally, I hadn’t heard of Neonode before this so slap me on the back of the legs and call me Nigel. Actually, skip the ‘Nigel’ part, it’s too cruel.
