The Fujitsu “multi-slider” phone features a virtual keypad which can display a pad appropriate to whichever way the keypad slides out: left, right, up or down. The four bottons at the front will also serve as music playback keys. Fujitsu’s concept machines are on show this week in Milan’s Triennale di Milano as part of an Japanese Design exhibition.
Another concept phone is less radical. The phone is landscape-oriented and designed more for browsing than making calls. It comes with a full keyboard slider with touch-sensitive keys a which are perfect for web use, texting and instant messaging.
