Mio Leap K1 cell phone reveals GPS on the flipside

Mio’s Leap K1: GPS on one side, quad-band cell phone with 2MP cam and Windows Mobile 6 on the other. I like it. I’m sure they could have managed to do it all with a touch screen, but there is something delightfully symmetrical about flipping something over to reveal a hereto unknown functionality. I want my cell phone to offer this same functionality with a Gameboy on the flipside.

    Cute, but why are the camera lens and camera buttons on the same side? Do most people only take pictures of their faces?

  2. Anonyman says:

    The camera lens is on the opposite side of the larger display. I’d guess that the camera buttons are on the side.

    If it’s running an OS odds are there is an emulator you can run your GB stuff on.

    It does seem pretty cool.
