Neonode N1m (http://rbi.ims.ca/4915-541). This mobile phone is also a digital camera, video player and MP3 player with an unusual human machine interface . To get a large display for graphics in a 88 × 52 × 21-mm form factor, Neonode engineers used touch-screen technology to provide an on-screen keyboard eliminating the traditional keyboard. Designed for one-hand navigation, a thumb sweeping over and tapping the screen easily accesses all the features. USB connectivity allows videos to be transferred from a computer to the unit's 1 Gbyte SD Card memory. Power management circuitry in the unit boosts the Li-ion battery's voltage to the level required by the display and the backlight.
