Codenamed Kiki, this handset, purportedly forthcoming from Sony-Ericsson, sports a glassy display and an unusual design, but no specs are offered. That's Vodafone, in the mockup image, as carrier. Also, I fully support the call for more green handsets. [Mobil via Unwired View]
Too bad. Had this come out earlier, it would have been the ultimate Minority Report tie-in. Ah well.
Display looks two sided and see-through. Some transparent OLEDy sort of thing, perhaps? And the little protrusion on the second green bar is where the one on the 5 on a regular phone is, so the bars would then be a keypad. I’d say this is strange in a good way.
Finally, a worthy successor for my Motorola F3!
It still has SE’s stupid proprietary plug. What happened to adopting standard microUSB, huh?
It looks very sexy, but I’m already tired of the touch screen thing. I prefer the full Qwerty key board like Sony x1 but with a better camera, more internal memory and an expandable mricoSD.
That’s another thing… Sony Ericsson ditching Memory Stick Micro cards in favor of MicroSD. Let’s see if that’s for real with this Kiki phone.
This looks like an odd phone but in a good way. I could see myself using this for about a week the getting bored. Phone is unique, just not unique enough to keep your attention
Maybe its just me but I feel as though from now on we should do touchscreen only. Buttons should not be used in new phones and gadgets. I don’t know about this phone but i see three buttons on the cover and it’s a future concept.
Re: “but no specs are offered” – it was a leak and they’re performing an internal hunt for the leaker.
