WoW-PoW goes to the 2008 CEATEC Japan: DoCoMo latest concept Mobile Phone has 2 removable touch screens.
We had a chance to attend the 2008 CEATEC trade show in Makuhari Messe Japan. The items of biggest interest had to be DoCoMo’s 2 piece touch screen concept phones. There were 2 functioning models and we had a chance to play with both. The one in the video attracted the biggest buzz with 2 removable touch screens with one of screens changing from a standard keyboard to a QWARTY keyboard. We liked the clean and slick styling of the phones and how the screens stayed together with magnets allowing you to change the pones configuration from a clam shell to a tablet. The other phone which was more polished had a traditional keyboard base and a removable screens that allowed you to talk on the phone while also watching video or surfing the net. Both phones has all the expected goodies, like Bluetooth, Web Browser, and Media Player capabilities. DoCoMo is gauging the reaction of the shows patricians to see if they will further develop the phones.
