I'm guessing Intel or IBM could have put that money to better use.. Really, why Nokia? I mean, I'm a big fan of their phones, but this isn't exactly their area of expertise, is it?

Heh... smart move from Nokia. They already capitalized a lot from the spontaneous marketing generated from all the indestructible Nokia memes, and this kind of research investment helps consolidate the idea that Nokia makes unbreakable stuff. Besides, it will also be very useful for their own products.

Nokia making indestructible stuff has historically been their exact area of expertise.

Graphene must be the real deal and not just a bunch of hype. It's been one of the only emerging materials/technology to get such HUGE support from both private and public institutions. I'm only 29, but I don't think I've ever seen anything like this.

"...with the European Union for the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) providing the grant itself."

IBM is not a Euopean based company.

the strongest material ever is the perforated part of toilet paper. It always tears somewhere else.

It was discovered in Manchester UK, and given to human society instead of patented! I will be utterly disappointed if there are patents that arise from the research into its mainstream use!

MISLEADING title ! What's your source for your title:

> Nokia Receives $1.35 Billion Grant to Develop the "Strongest Material Ever Tested"
????

The total grant is 1.35 Billion (about 1 Billion Euro), but there are more than a hundred
project partners involved ! Maybe Nokia is the biggest but to simply state "Nokia receives the
grant" is absolutely misleading, they are just one part !! As far as I know they're not even the leader,
which Chalmers University of Sweden.

"Nokia Receives $1.35 Billion Grant to Develop..."
In other words, the government is bailing Nokia out but they couldn't give them the money directly due to laws.

the news is not complete, the European Union had a technology projects contest and GRAPHENE is one of the winners. many universities and technology companies will work together to make this new material usable

I've been reading about graphene since the 90s. Every few years it seems like graphene is "discovered" and will be used in products within a few years.
