Rotating Dual Touchscreen Phone Easily Becomes a Console, a Mini Netbook

With Android Ice Cream Sandwich supposedly launching on October 11th, I can’t help but think that the concept you can see below will run this OS. Created by Abhi Muktheeswarar, this device is rotatable dual display handset, that can be turned into a mini netbook or a portable console.

No specs were provided, so I’m going to go ahead and speculate that this is a 4 inch device with a waistline of 10mm and a dual core 1.5GHz CPU. Its sliding part is also a touchscreen, that can display either a portrait keyboard or a landscape one and even virtual gaming controls, if the need arises.

The really interesting part is the rotating mechanism here and I’d rather follow the Japanese model and see this unit only united by Bluetooth, without the two parts being physically attached to one another. The picture of the handset in landscape mode reminds me of the Motorola Milestone, but honestly I can imagine LG coming up with a dual screen smartphone concept of this kind.

    I know this has ICS on it, but with no physical buttons (and if you got rid of the iPhone-like home button), it would be a killer device for webOS once it goes open source.
