Nokia patents touchscreen device with multi-function USB strap

27 Jun

This one has to be amongst the most ambitious patents that we have seen from Nokia in the recent past. The Finnish handset major has bagged a patent for what it calls “a portable electronic device having a cable that functions as a carrying strap, a stylus, a data cable, and a power cable.”

Cutting away the patent jargon, Nokia’s TOUCHSCREEN device has a USB cable tucked away neatly in a cavity below the touchscreen. The cable can act as a hand/neck strap, headsets and even a stylus. The device looks kinda cute in the patent and having the USB cord attached to the device ensures that you don’t leave/lose it. But the bigger question is whether this is going to be one of the phones in the touchscreen ‘portfolio’ that Nokia intends to launch later this year?
