A Glimpse of the Next Episode - Nokia examines the future

Nokia recently released a press release about a report it had comissioned, 'A Glimpse of the Next Episode' which talked about the future of entertainment. The main trend identified was the coming of 'Circular Entertainment' (content created, edited and shared within a peer community rather than traditional media sources). Nokia have now released a number of videos featuring discussion around some of the key areas of the report. Read on for more and to view the videos.

Read on in the full article.

Well here's a quote from that release:

"23% buy movies in digital format".

What does that mean? Does that mean the other 77% don't buy movies at all? Or 23% of movie buyers buy digital?

Because I think it would be a difficult task trying to buy a movie on VHS or Super 8. I suppose that if I looked hard enough I could find pockets of cable TV viewers with analogue cable doing pay per view but not 77%.

I think they mean 23% of people have bought video content on a non-physical format (probably as an internet download). A lot of people (incorrectly) take digital to mean the same thing as online.

That figure doesn't mean the 23% ONLY buy non-physical video, it just means that 23% of the people they asked said they had bought videos as downloads.

If that includes video clips, that's a very plausible figure when you consider all the video clip download services that phone networks and others offer nowadays.

"Senior Future Specialist" LOL. Without the iPhone clueless Nokia would make the Windows 3.1 looking left right softkey UI crap until the end of the world.

Merry Christmas Macboy, we've missed you very much. You seem to visit this site an awful lot for someone who professes to hate everything Symbian-related.

Try to ignore the fact that Nokia already made a touchscreen smartphone way back in 2005 with the 7710, and has carried on the project in the form of their internet tablets.

2005? How long ago was the genesis of Symbian making the Psion 5 and Revo?

10 years?

Did not believe the iphone hype until I actually used one for a while, the interface is amazing. Yes there have been "touch" screen based mobiles & pdas out there for years which I have used (palm,windows mobile, nokia) but this brings it to the next level, it just works without complaining. BUT as a phone the iphone still fails on a couple of points, size (too large), text entry (difficult without any feedback when on the move), not robust (with a glass screen would worry every time i used it outside), cost (too expensive as an overall package), data rate (no 3.5G)....

But it moves the game on for Nokia which is good, still think Nokia make the best phones (voice & text) but Apple make the best multimedia devices with excellent integration with pc/mac (plug iphone in and it syncs seamlessly , gets firmware updates seamlessly, all the time every time..., something Nokia fail to get right, why have a pc suite with several apps when one will do?). So unless Nokia move on from an 80's based UI then they might have some real competition on their hands when iphone rev 2 or 3 appears......

Symbian = not so beautiful, but smart
iPhone = cute, but dumb

Yes, the iPhone interface is pretty, but where are the features?

Ahhh, the internet wouldn't be the same without fanboys loving a product regardless of its failings.

I'm not saying the iPhone is rubbish - it does have a good UI, but its way too heavily biased towards doing a couple of basic things quite well. The browser is good, but browsing speed even on the edge networks is pretty poor.

The 23% in the article is misleading. It must mean digital download, but I can't believe that figure.

DVD is a digital media, and you can't even begin to believe that 23% of people actually buy movies via various on-line/on-demand services? Thats a ridiculous figure.
