Provoke showcased Nokia's future sets in New York Design Week

Provoke, a reputed design firm, has designed the future phone set models for Nokia that are being showcased at the New York Design Week. Provoke brought three models: Express, Feel and Share. reports:

Where as Nokia's Design Studio event in London last month focused upon eco-friendly offerings, the event stateside saw models which you can really make your own.

The most notable three concepts are called ?Express?, ?Feel? and ?Share?.

The Express is all about personal, (yes you've guessed it) expressions, which means, in basic terms, users can customise the interface, or even the colour of their phone.

Say the designers: "The pace and intensity of visual contrast between the different states can be customised to suit personal liking". Right.

According to the designers of the phone sets, they offer ‘real physical communication.’ I looked at the three sets. The ‘Feel’ looked a bit weird. I did not feel like I am looking at a mobile phone set. Anyway, the ‘Share’ is like a mini mp3 player hanging out from your side pocket (increasing physical communication!!). Finally, ‘Express’ is a ladies phone because the color is red and pink. Till now, I haven’t seen any guy with a pink mobile phone. Did you see anyone?
