The Nokia CORE Phone Doubles as a PC Peripheral

If a phone and a mouse (the PC kind, not the furry variety) mated and had a child, the result would be the Nokia CORE phone. For the person who prefers convenience and utility, the Nokia CORE phone is both a mobile phone and a computer mouse. To me, it doesn’t get any better than that.

While I could do without its 'Star Wars'-inspired graphics, the Nokia CORE phone’s solar system interface—in which all of its functions revolve around the core—is pretty neat. According to The Design Blog, when you put the phone face down on a flat surface, it automatically turns into a functional PC mouse, transferring the interface and content to the screen of the nearest computer via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
