Are you sure this is a phone?
The demo guy makes it look more like a card trick.
Alas no, check the clip at 1:09. that is definitely a single piece hinge clip that is angled at a right angle: screen up, keyboard down.
I really like your idea though, and Motorola should take note!
I don't get it.
If it's sitting on the table, the keyboard would be face down.
And the track pad is on the rear of the screen.
How do you browse the web like this?
I care not for how HE thinks it's great (he's biased anyway), but since you can't actully DO anything, what's the point?
That only leaves it with the screen in landscape position, the keyboard just underneath it.
Purely co-incedently, exactly like many, many other smart phones out there.
So what does it bring to the table? In a different postion, the keyboard can be made inaccesable, and the trackpad even more of nusance to use than it is on bloody notebooks.
Are they serious?
You will look most stupid with a keyboard stuck to the side of your head.
And a touchpad on the back of the screen. What were they smoking that day?
I quite like this, it's a bit of innovation but a worthwhile stab at something new.
