Nokia has been talking about using graphene in their phone for the past four years now and it seems now someone is willing to help them make it a reality. First lets start off with what graphene is: a two-dimensional “super-material” that measures just one atom thick and is described by Nokia as the “strongest material ever tested, having a breaking strength 300 times greater than steel.” It has been reported that Nokia has received a $1.35 billion grant to develop graphene.
They won it as part of the “Graphene Flagship Consortium” This is a group 74 industry and academic partners that seek to develop graphene to make usable consumer electronics with it. In fact Nokia CTO Henry Tirri says:
“When we talk about graphene, we’ve reached a tipping point. We’re now looking at the beginning of a graphene revolution,” he says. “Before this point in time, we figured out a way to manufacture cheap iron that led to the Industrial Revolution. Then there was silicon. Now, it’s time for graphene.”
I for one can’t wait to see what Nokia does with graphene…How about you?
