New Windows Phone concept phone boasts double flip action

New Windows Phone concept phone boasts double flip actionThere's nothing quite like a concept device. We know that we might be looking at something that might one day become reality, but for now we can suspend said reality and check out some cool new kit.

And so it is with the Triple Flip Phone (go on, say it 10 times quickly, we dare you) from schultzeWORKS, a quirky looking Windows Phone 7 device that actually might not fall foul of Microsoft's stringest WinPho hardware specs.

When closed up the Triple Flip Phone looks largely like any other phone, but it features flip up keypads at both the top and bottom of the screen, hence the name.

“We looked at the areas where smart phones were falling short and then delivered seven innovations to make them truly better. We had a few more, but seven was a good place to stop,” says lead designer Dave Schultze.

So what are these exciting innovations our man Dave is talking about? Helpfully, schultzeWORKS has posted a YouTube clip to answer those very questions...

Lovely concept. I like the slide out keyboard.

Intresting concept, looks amazingly flimsy tho, especially the slide-out keyboard. Very much a fan of the solar cell tho, anything to help extend the battery life of todays smartphones now manufacturers seem to be pushing hard towards thiness and "desirability" rather than actual uefuness(i.e lasting longer than 24 hours between charges ith modeate use)

IMO undoubably the best concept phone ever is the Mozilla Seabitd (link below), I would pay a sizable amount of cash for it if that was ever released...

Ooooh a levitating phone!! :p
Joking aside, that looks sweet. It's like something out of Minority Report.

The dual projectors seem very interesting. The infra red keyboard is sweet looking, but it makes me wonder what it would be like to use in bright lighting.

Hey Martin James!

Thanks for the coverage and very nice post. The vast majority of press on other blogs is entirely copy-and-pasted from from the PR -- or someone else. I really appreciate the time you took to review the work and actually write some original thoughts. Nice job!
