The first Touch Screen mobile phone

Looking for the right solutions beyond the expectations of the consumer


By employing a structured process of creating ideas it appears to be possible to develop the ‘logical concept’ for a product or service: the first touch screen mobile phone ever. A condition for success is to be aware of the (long-term) trends and to become free of the pressure of short-term goals.

Ideal typical concept

WeLLDesign came up with a number of concepts for a mobile phone before the first IBM product featuring a touch screen was marketed. WeLLDesign was convinced that the ideal phone would feature a touch screen that could present a keyboard if desired.


The result was the preface to many projects in telecom business for, among others, Ericsson, Ascom, DeTeWe, Alcatel-Thomson and HTC.
