In episode 3 of our Emporia Telecom series, we talk to Ian Hosking, Senior Research Associate at the Engineering Design Centre, University of Cambridge.

This is a design philosophy that, as Ian describes, many mobile manufacturers would do well to examine.
In this video he highlights just how important it is to think carefully about the end-users of mobile phones — an area of key focus for Emporia. You’ll also see Ian deconstruct the design interface of a rather bog standard Nokia — one that we all assume would ordinarily be described as ‘easy to use’. It’s rather fascinating.
See what you think. Here’s the video:
