Fujitsu has been playing around with a very interesting concept. The phone has a UI designed by TAT and two 960 x 480 displays. The screens can be switched between portrait and landscape displays, converting the phone into a clamshell or flip, effectively allowing you to change the phone’s form-factor. Scroll down for a video of the phone in action, plus another video demonstrating the prowess of TAT’s user interface.
