#91MobileFeatures‏–crowdsourced ideas for futuristic mobility

So we were in trends again. Just like the last contest for crazy mobile apps, we got tonnes of ideas. And this time we got some real innovative ideas which could (and should) make their way in forthcoming mobiles.

Well, if you are wondering, I am talking about the competition launched on Monday by 91mobiles.com. It was regarding tweeting the innovative mobile features and getting most retweets on it. For the winners, a pair of Skull Candy earphones and a bluetooth headset were at stake.


As earlier, Hours after the contest started we were trending in India and thousands of feature ideas were flowing in. It was not easy to select just a few good ideas from the bunch. To ease up the things, we segregated them in three segments: Funny, Practical and Futuristic.

There were a few impossible ideas also. Like one tweeted by priyankakantak, where she wished a mobile which can read her mind. Sorry ma’m, nothing in his world can read a girl’s mind Open-mouthed smile.

Coming back to the selected tweets. Here are the best ones:

Funniest feature ideas:
