Future Perfect Mobile


Future Perfect The blog of former Nokia Chief Scientist Jan Chipchase, who is now at Frog Design. At Nokia, Chipchase worked as a sort of tech anthropologist, exploring the different approaches cultures around the world take to tech and usability. His blog focuses on observations from his work, often illustrated with beautifully composed photographs.

Future Perfect is mobilized for the iPhone, Android, WebOS and Opera Mini using the WPTouch plugin. Curiously, Nokia browsers and legacy mobile devices get the desktop rather than the mobile edition.

One thought on “Found On The Mobile Web #210

  1. Hi, YesWAP is really an useful compilation. I have found many useful tools from this.
    tube2mp3 is good. But, once try it’s really great. You can can directly search and download youtube videos in 3gp. Also, audio only download feature is also there. More over works flawlessly on Opera mini.
