Nokia Lumia 1000 concept phone – PureView, QWERTY, & Windows 8

Nokia Lumia 1000 concept phone – PureView, QWERTY, & Windows 8
When it comes to concept phones, they really run the gamut from reality to fantasy. In the latest render to hit the web, Tasak gives us a glimpse of the Nokia Lumia 1000 the way his imagination dreams it up.

He envisions this device to be running an Intel Atom 1.8GHz dual-core even though Stephen Elop recently said dual- and quad-core mobile phones are a waste of battery. Aesthetically, the device features a 4.3-inch AMOLED display, a slide out QWERTY keyboard with joystick, and a 41-megapixel PureView camera on the back.
 
Interestingly, Tasak’s vision runs on Windows 8, as opposed to Windows Phone 8, which pushes this fantasy more into the realm of a phablet.

Take a look at the render below. What do you think? Would this version of a Lumia 1000 be a yay or nay for you?

While i am drooling at the mouth after looking at the specs I am also considering the weight of the car battery that i would have to carry on my body to power this phone. Can someone suggest a car battery that weighs the least and gives more power?

Everything look pretty except on the side, it's quite ugly. Keep it simple like Iphone or SG2.

Super specs ... but VGA FFC?! Really?! xD P.S. The design is good but many don't love it ;) I for one love it if it has no physical keyboard ;)

for me Concept Nokia lumia 1000 should be like 4.5 clear black display (HD resolution) , dual core s4 Qualcomm processor , windows phone 8, Nokia Pureview 41 MP. Nokia will be back in market head-to-head with iPhone and Android.

Get rid of the keyboard and the horrid camera hump, and I'd actually consider switching from Android to this.

Without the keyboard and adding a battery flush to the top of the camera lens, the handset might actually be able to last a day with moderate use.

wow... "41mp + qwerty keyboard" There are some things that made me curious. "How thick and heavy it was"? 2cm and 2 kilograms? huhhf.. it is like a brick. I think this is the most stupid phone.

ow come on stop spamming and liking your own comment again and again. and it is concept it is not is actual in designing this concept stuff is broadcasted so they get feedback from people so they know what is lacking and exaggerated.

Like the front not the bulky back camera... no point putting a 41 MP camera on a Phone really... I think Nokia should make there very own dslr that way it should be better...

How stupid! It's only a concept and will probably never be produced.

ooooo...tempting.just give me quad core,remove that camera hump and i am sold.

I thinks if it's a 4.3 phone, they can do away with the physical qwerty keyboard. Also, I know that the hump is necessary for the 41MP Pureview camera but maybe by removing the keyboard, they could hide that hump in a slightly thicker body. Besides, the Atom Z2580 would probably necessitate a big battery anyway therefore a thicker body to house it so they can probably find a place for the Pureview somewhere without the hump. And for W8 on a phone, and also the WP8 OS, the dual-core would be more than enough, especially if it's the Atom Z2580. I don't think a quad-core is necessary. But since this is a concept phone, hey why not!

HMM one thing about Nokia they like sharps corner on the design of their high level smart phones that make it had to hold them after awhile round off the corners and leave out the keyboard so the Nokia 1000 can have a large battery which it will need for dual core Glory and the High def screen. Folks if you want high tech you have to have high current battries. the Nokia N8 camera might be a better choice to make the phone look sleeker

I loved the physical keyboard on my Nokia N97. If only the software and OS were better. I ended up switching the a Desire Z. The keyboard wasn't quite as good. This phone is piquing my interest as I prefer physical keyboards. Not to hot on Windows, though.

This phone can bring Nokia back to the top. considering what medfield has done in benchmarks this dual core atom is going to kick ass and with 41 mpx and 2 gb ram this makes up for 1 hell of a phone.
