Nokia announced a collaboration with the University of Cambridge in several areas of long-term research, starting with nanotechnology:
The Finnish handset maker will establish a research facility, initially with a team of 10 scientists, at the university's West Cambridge campus and work with several departments, including the Nanoscience Center and the Electrical Division of the Engineering Departments, the company said Tuesday.

Nokia scientists will focus initially on nanotechnology, a branch of science and engineering devoted to the design of extremely small electronic devices and circuits built from individual atoms and molecules.

Space has become a precious commodity in compact mobile phones already packed with advanced functions, such as digital cameras, music players, mobile TV and cashless payment.
