Nokia has announced some of the plans it has for the future of mobile phones and internet browsing.

The Finnish manufacturer is hosting its annual Nokia World event in Barcelona this week and one of the innovations which is being showcased is the N97 mobile computer and phone.

Combining a range of new services, the Nokia N97 promises to combine communications technology with email and mapping - and according to the firm's president and chief executive, Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, could be revolutionary.

"Today, we are at the threshold of another profound change in the way we connect and interact with each other and with our world," he said at the opening of the conference.

It was also revealed this week that Nokia's Home Control Center system would be on display in Barcelona this week.

The system looks to connect electrical appliances and gadgets in the home with the latest phones, so that handsets can be used to monitor and control a property remotely.
