iPhone Slim and Sony Ericsson Walkman concept, but this time we’re dealing with a future BlackBerry. Dubbbed BlackBerry Blackout, the handset keeps the shape and design of a RIM product, but it also comes with advanced features, like an 8 megapixel camera with 2x optical zoom and shake reduction.
Jerome Brown shows us another handset design, after the great
BlackBerry Blackout uses touchscreen keys (probably a virtual keyboard or touch sensitive keys, a front videochat camera, 3G connectivity, a music button, audio recording features, 8GB of internal memory and a slot for 40GB more.
When the BlackBerry concept phone is not active, a glossy surface will be revealed on the place where the touch sensitive keys usually appear, making the handset more elegant and sexy. Quite an interesting design and a good follow-up to the Storm and Curve.

Andy Kurovets, the superb handset comes with a touchscreen and an 8 megapixel camera.
The sci fi side of this concept phone can be found in its looks, resembling some hovercraft of the future, while the mythological part is the name, Nibiru (celestial object in the Babylonian culture/planet Jupiter). Created by
There’s an MP3 player on the side of the phone, or should I say its audio controls, allowing the user to change tracks without getting the phone out of the pocket. On the opposite side of the Nibiru concept phone you’ll find the audio system and the specs list of the device also includes a touchpad, that’s ideal for web surfing.
The curved edges serve as a screen protector and the device comes with a mobile battery and a navi key beneath the large touchscreen. Could this be a Nokia concept phone of the future?

concept phone comes with an innovative design and it’s available with a matte casing made out of aluminium.
Black handsets are back in fashion, one could say, specially looking at the great design imaged by Antoine Brieux. The NAK Pure Black
The handset measures 105 x 55mm and it’s only 8mm thick, also weighing 142 grams. Its display is a 4.1 inch AMOLED screen with a 800 x 600 pixels resolution and on Pure Black’s specs list you’ll also find a 1 GHz Qualcomm processor, Windows Mobile 6.5 and 32GB of internal memory.
Antoine Brieux also adds a HDMI video out port in the mix, PC sync, GPS, WiFi DLNA and Bluetooth Stereo, plus a microSDHC card slot and an 8 megapixel camera with Xenon flash, autofocus and 720p HD video recording. What do you say? Is this concept phone viable or just a dream?

This is probably one of the best “first concept phones” I’ve seen in a while, designed by Liam Quinn and packing quite an interesting set of features. Liam claims that this device features 2 OLED screens: one as the main display and the other as a sliding part that’s used to show the virtual keyboard and game controls.
The handset packs an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED and Xenon flash and it also uses a concertina optical zoom mechanism, that the designer is currently developing. This mechanism will make handsets with support for optical zoom a lot thinner. Back to the concept phone, it also features sliding touch keys, that can move independently and a future version of the device will also come with basic inputs (3.5mm headphone jack and more).
Liam welcomes your suggestions and would like to know what other features you’d like to see on this handset and what improvements you’d make. I would like a decent amount of internal memory, TV out, FM radio, an accelerometer and maybe the ability to connect two such phones to make a bigger screen.

PSP Phone concept, a sliding device with unknown features and its maker claims that any input is welcome, so you can suggest new features and design traits, if you want. I spot an 8 megapixel camera at the back, also a front videocall camera and I’m betting that the action buttons are hidden beneath the screen.
Esato board user Sealover94 designed a great
One might even suppose that this PSP Phone incorporates a sliding QWERTY keypad, maybe even analog sticks (unlikely) and a touchscreen. Tons of memory on board, of course, Bluetooth, WiFi, 3G hopefully and whatnot… What would like to see on this PSP Phone, spec-wise?

Sony Ericsson, we might as well go back to the times when the two companies were separate. We travel back in time thanks to J. Havrlant, the designer who resurrected the Ericsson brand by creating the Ericsson Hannah concept phone, based on Android OS.
Since Sony plans to buy Ericsson’s share in
The device features a touch VGA display, support for Wi-Fi b/g, HSDPA/HSUPA, 16GB of internal memory and an 8 megapixel camera. Plausible? Doable? We’ll learn in due time.

LG Cyon Whiskey concept phone, that changes its color to a “shade of whiskey” showing the distance of the person calling you.
We’ve seen phones inspired by perfumes, flowers and even animals, but this is the first time I’ve seen a whiskey-themed device. Juyoung Kim designed the
This handset packs a full touchscreen display, an 8 megapixel camera and uses its ability to change color like a chameleon, in order to show the distance between people chatting on the phone.
If you’re talking to someone that calls from the same town, the phone will display a “mild whiskey” color, but if you’re getting a call from thousands of miles away, LG Cyon Whiskey will change its color drastically, to a darker shade.

Sony Ericsson concept, but a real device. Hikaru is a slider phone with metal housing and probably the only really high end music handset in years…
Oh my God! I didn’t expect to see the 8 megapixel camera – Walkman player combo too soon, but here it is and it’s known as Hikaru, NOT a
It’s got a 2.6 inches display, 8 GB memory, Walkman player 4.0, a 3.5 mm audio jack, stereo speakers and music keys. Expect it to be announced at Mobile World Congress 2009 and launched at the end of Q2 2009. Brilliant!

T903 Ryuga, Sealover94 decided to share his vision on the future of Sony Ericsson Walkman phones.
One can’t even go to bed and wake up the next morning, without finding out that a new SE concept design has hit the prolific Esato board. After J. Havrlant did 3 versions of the
This time, the W1 concept phone gets pictured front and back, where it reveals a nice 8 megapixel camera.
I’ve been watching the evolution of SE concepts for quite a while now and there’s a pretty strong tendency of blending Cyber-shot and Walkman handsets. Why doesn’t Sony Ericsson do it? It’s a mystery to me… It might be that a music phone with a hot camera would have a high price tag.

hot cameraphone that should pack at least a 6 megapixel sensor.
Nokia was always about low end devices, music phones, N Series smartphones, basically any type of handset you can imagine, except for cameraphones. They never gave the world a Cyber-shot, a Renoir, an INNOV8, but it’s never too late… One year ago the web was filled with an image from the Finns’ patent showing a pretty
Now, after going back to GSM Arena’s incredibly useful Nokia smartphone roadmap for 2008-2009, I ran across a device called Corolla. There seems to be no other cameraphone in the company’s portofolio to fit the description of “hot cameraphone”. Although Nokia Corolla’s specs don’t quite match the look of the patent image, the resulting device may be even better than the one we were hoping for.
Expect a handset with a 3 inch VGA display, an 8 megapixel camera, 8GB ROM, WiFi, AGPS, half QWERTY keyboard and 128 MB RAM.
