Some of you might remember the Sony Ericsson concept phone below, while to others it may seem brand new. One thing is for sure: the folks of Mobilissimo have come up with an interesting theory, regarding the fact that this handset’s design, dating from 3 years back might have been the inspiration for the iPhone 4.

The design is still good enough to impress everyone even in 2010, when sliding phones with tiny displays and physical keys aren’t so cool any more. We can’t really say that Apple copied this look, but they could have used some of its traits on the newest iPhone. We wonder why Sony Ericsson didn’t take the same route…
