Taiwan's OKWAP is sitting on a new Windows Mobile smartphone that looks eerily reminiscent of many newer Sony Ericsson designs. It's not really a first for OKWAP -- a Windows Mobile Smartphone, that is -- but this baby sports a slick "virtual" scroll wheel, ala iPod. Sporting a very clean and almost sterile white design, we were first perplexed by the absence of a joystick or d-pad of some kind, but alas, OKWAP has designed the whole keypad to be a touch-sensitive virtual navigation array. The SD slot on the top of the unit (great move OKWAP) takes old school full SD cards and the single connector -- miniUSB -- rounds out the bottom. Price in Taiwan? $450US for that beauty, once you find it.
