As the technology in hardware becomes more advanced, with mobile processors breaking the 1.5GHz mark already, data files will follow a similar trend by taking up more space on memory in order to be stored properly. With that in mind, there are probably situations when you have to sit through an extensive amount of time to get you phone synced up to your computer – so that music, pictures, files, and videos get properly transferred. The Helsinki branch of the Nokia Research Center is sharing their latest concept that introduces a fast new wireless data transfer method. Basically it was on display to show off how an entire music album can be wirelessly transferred to handset in less than 10 seconds. This concept and working prototype was developed to keep the retail environment in mind – like how new Nokia owners are able to quickly get popular content onto their handset without having to wait too long. So basically owners can simply fill up their device with the best apps, tunes, games, and any other digital content within a matter of moments. Nokia calls the concept “Explore and Share” – which is based on a new radio technology where the demo unit sees you placing a device on a “writer.” From there, it is connected to a separate touchscreen monitor that forms a short-range connection between the writer and device. Once it is immediately paired, you simply tap to transfer all your favorite content onto your handset. Aside from seeing this in one of Nokia's retail stores in the future, it could potentially find its way into the consumer market where it could shorten those lengthy wait times during long synchronization situations.
