There’s yet another transparent display phone concept out there, one imagined by Shaocheng Huang & Yuyin Huang and defined as simply a portable PC. I’ve seen such devices before and usually the transparency stuff serves for taking great pictures, using augmented reality or an improved GPS feature. Now let’s see what the Fujitsu Brick offers us this time…
This concept uses the transparent screen for magnifying purposes, text translation, video and photo capture plus… a projector feature. The Fujitsu device is an ultraslim one, it’s very sleek and supports instant translation from one language to another. The magnifier works perfectly and considering I don’t see any buttons here, I guess it’s all touchscreen and gestures. I don’t quite get how you can use this handset as a projector… maybe by amplifying a light source it will project a certain image or video on a surface.
If you add a decent CPU, camera and storage to this unit, it could become useful especially for students and business men, if you take into account its features. There’s one thing that I always wonder when seeing a transparent phone: does it really use a sheet of see through glass, or it just has the camera on all the time and shows what it captures behind the phone? I’ve seen both versions at work…

CEATEC 2010 is here and with it tons of prototypes you might be interested in. We’ll focus on cellphones and maybe tablets, since we’re into portable devices, after all… The first concept that caught our eye was a Fujitsu dual touchscreen handset, shown in the following images.
Developed in partnership with UI creators TAT, this unit is apparently ready for production, unless we’re mistaking, so it should take off in a year or two. The software doesn’t quite look ready, but the hardware does and we have to admit that the two 960 x 480 pixel displays look hot next to each other.
Only the browser and email list scrolling were shown in action, on both displays. Also, there was an interesting feature we must mention: users are able to share photos from the bottom display to the list of contacts on the top display. Through rotating mechanisms, as you might have figured out, both displays are able to switch from portrait to landscape mode. How cool is that?

Fujitsu concept phone below might also get some hype, or so it did during CEATEC 2009, where it was showcased as part of the future handset designs of its maker.
Transparent phones are all the rage in 2009 and till now we’ve only seen the LG GD900 getting the deserved popularity. The
This handset is a slider phone with a transparent keypad that looks very neat. We cannot help but wonder if the touchscreen is also transparent, making the device really fancy and highly appealing to the feminine public.
Will this phone ever become a real product and how many transparent handsets does it take to make them a category of cellphones?

Fujitsu concept phones showcased at CEATEC 2009 and this time we’re having a look at a white handset, that looks more like a VoIP phone than anything else. This stylish and slim device comes with a special empty space at the bottom, allowing it to be easily attached to clothes, purses and whatnot.
We’re nearing the end of our series of
Notice that there’s a WEB button on the front side, plus another key for mails and we have yet to find out if this Fujitsu concept incorporates a camera or not. There’s also another “hanging piece” at the upper side of the phone, so you’ll attach the device by using this area as well. That’s about all we know regarding the Fujitsu handset, unless you count that it also includes a numeric keypad.

Fujitsu concept phones showcased at CEATEC 2009 hasn’t quite been a ball, specially since most of them were available online as mere pictures, so it’s up to us to speculate on their features and design. The list goes on, with the seventh concept, pictured below, a full touchscreen display handset.
Reporting about the
The phone seems pretty normal, a touchscreen device with a pretty big screen, an on-screen numeric keypad and two strange segments on the upper and lower side. These two really made me curious and wonder what the deal with them was… Are they hinges of an unusual flip phone? Tiny camera sensors maybe? Projectors?
What do you think of this phone design?

Fujitsu’s booth during CEATEC 2009, but we sometimes stop and have a look at beautiful fashion handsets, like the one pictured below. Its keypad shape sort of reminds me of an Christmas tree decoration…
Technologically advanced concept phones are all the rage nowadays, specially at
Although we have no info on this Fujitsu concept phone, we can dare to speculate and assume it’s a luxury handset, with a touchscreen display and a numeric keypad that hopefully won’t break in your pocket. The device seems rather fragile and slim, but it should be meant to reach a lady’s purse, so it’s quite OK.
I’m wondering who likes sharp edges on a phone, specially considering the feeling of such a device in a pocket. Is the keyboard foldable into something less likely to poke you while walking?

Fujitsu concept phones we’ve seen at CEATEC 2009 were only showcased, without any additional info, we’ll just have to suppose what their features are. For example, the handset below seems to be a pen phone with a projector on board, that’s revealed in the last image of this article.
Since most of the
As you can see, the Fujitsu pen phone projects both a virtual screen and a virtual QWERTY keyboard and I bet that it also comes with visual and acoustic sensors, for extra means of interaction.
It’s got mail, Internet and a tiny display on its body’s side, showing the called ID and numeric keys (unless these are physical, although I can’t figure this out).

Fujitsu showcased neat concept phones like the ones we’ve been showing you the past week. The fourth of this series is the device below, a piece of equipment that would certainly look cool in the Sailor Moon universe.
CEATEC 2009 must’ve been a pretty cool tech show, considering that
This seems to be a luxurious Fujitsu phone, with a circular display, probably a touchscreen one, that shows the main items in a way that reminds me of zodiac signs or simply a cooler watch. There’s also a circular physical numeric pad to use, beneath the screen, plus a couple of other regular keys, like call, end call, an On/Off button and two more mystery buttons.
It’s pretty interesting to see that the date on-screen is 2011, so could this mean that this is the luxury phone of two years from now?

Fujitsu concept phones showcased at CEATEC 2009 hasn’t ended yet and it gets even better, through the model you can see below. We’re wondering if the entire surface of the handset is also its full touchscreen display and what the deal with that green button is, if it’s a button at all.
The series of
Well, the green thingie could just be the Home button and moving on to the handset’s design, the idea of a glossy, curvy, square-ish phone looking like a soap bar doesn’t get us all that excited. This would make a brilliant mouse, though…
I can’t picture anything else than dropping this slippery-looking portable device on the floo, since it’s sooo glossy.

pebble glass handset we’ve mentioned before. Now, we’ve stumbled upon a Fujitsu phone that seems taken from Judge Dredd and our guess is that it’s in fact a bracelet phone.
CEATEC 2009 hosted a wide variety of concept phones, specially those cool Fujitsu models, like the elegant
We can spot a camera incorporated in the device, plus a directional pad (probably for gaming purposes), a numeric keypad, two curvy displays (probably touchscreen) and a couple of other buttons. The Fujitsu concept phone looks like a pretty neat gaming device, with cool media features and a very high tech bracelet if it’s able to get attached to the user’s hand.
If I were to compare this to another object, it would surely be that Cryptex from the Da Vinci Code, but this would be half of that puzzle gadget.
