Nokia is taking our gadget-fondling addiction one step further with its concept Aeon phone. The cell phone ditches a traditional keypad for a touchscreen display you can caress with your delicate fingers. It's different than Nokia's previous keyless phone and seems like it'd make less of a bulk in your front pocket than Synaptics' Onyx phone we wrote about last week. The Aeon is still a concept phone, however, so Apple still has time to steal their thunder with an iPhone of their own.

I'm thinking these touch screen phones would get greased up pretty quick. Then all the lint/jelly beans/Mary J in my pocket would coat the thing up and make it pretty groady real quick.
