The Turning Point For A Phone

I love covering concept phones that may not have substance to them (tech-backing), but nevertheless are fun to read about. Featured here is a concept Sony Ericsson FH Mobile Phone that has a pivotal point to it. It flips vertical on a pivot to mimic a phone and rotates sideways to become a viewing screen for the media functions and web browsing. The phone even becomes an intercom of sorts when split into two, allowing easy communication between the two parties holding each end. What a high-tech walkie-talkie this would make!

    Ummm, why does this Sony Ericson have an iPhone home screen?

    Hmm well looks like the worst idea ever, kinda of like just have 2 phones on you, they would both need a battery and everything else i jst dont see the point :/

    It's just SHINY. you take one look at it and say oooOOO. just like people with the first iphones and ipads; you buy it right when it comes to stores and pay a shitload for it, then a couple months later the price drops, newer phones without all the bugs are released and you get pissed. honestly, is all that stuff really necessary? 2 screens at separate, 2 separate hinges, when it's going to end up being the same size as a Droid. just buy a Droid or iphone.

    This would be cool, but every sony ericsson phone i've had has broken within 1 year. I had to get one replaced and the replacement phone broke as well, as did the replacement after that. all within one year.

    I love the front design, but a flip phone like this just wouldn't be functional. That exposed screen edge would easily damage. And as for taking it apart, that's just a disaster waiting to happen.

    Looks a little too complicated for practical use and could break easily. And the 2 parts separating would never work. "oh no! where did I leave the other half of my phone?" More so, if it divided in 2 pieces like that, it would require 2 batteries, which would make the overall phone much more expensive and heavier (and probably bigger). I suppose it could be done, by having 2 smaller than usual batteries in each half, and when they are reconnected, the entire phone will run off of a combined total power for both batteries. The biggest drawback would be that every time you split the two parts up, your battery life would decrease by half.

    Its a good idea. Except the screen would have a big seam down the middle in "TV mode". There is no way around that, there will always be an edge on the screens.
    And from an engineering perspective, the two axis pivot is a huge headache. Pretty sure its impossible, or else it would have been done before. Mobile phone companies have been thinking of this sort of thing for 10 years, for sure. What about the 360 wiring for power, display and everything else?

    I honestly can't stand this site when it comes up in stumbleupon. Not one idea is doable or even remotely realistic. These designers need to learn some basic engineering and maybe look at the inside of gadgets for once, because clearly all this junk is just daydreams. I think of these ideas offhand all the time, and dismiss them for being retarded.
    And don't tell me we need people to dream up this stuff. Most of this site is unrealistic even if supermaterials existed, they just break the laws of physics. It is just art, not design if it ignores certain givens like strength, modern and near-future technology, and environmental issues. The age of the inventor is dead, unless one can take everything into account.

    This is one of the better ideas IMO, but again, still has major flaws.

      "Pretty sure its impossible" Isn't that what they said about flying a while back, amongst other things that we now take for granted?

    i wish i coulod have this phone it so kwl i love nad want it ^.^

    i think you should install the camera on the horrible hinge, so the most important design feature of your phone do something more than just pivot.
