Seung-Hwan Lee, a South Korean designer recently sent us his concept phone design, based on a steering wheel input mechanism. The device is pictured below and we have to say the idea is quite original, although some of you might think it’s borrowed from the iPod’s scroll wheel.

Other features of this concept include a wide LCD touchscreen display, a rotating circular wheel with functions like email, menu, camera and notes embedded in it. Side buttons are also incorporated into the device, each with features like Send, End, Clear and more.

The wheel mechanism will provide access to quick navigation, media playback and new ways of input. What do you think?

    Not as original as you think really. I remember seeing this on an LG phone years ago.
