NEC shows off five new concept phones


Although we've seen some interesting designs out of NEC in the past, for the most part the company is known for churning out an endless array of pretty standard phones -- so the five concepts being shown off at the Wireless Japan 2007 seem fairly wild in comparison. In addition to the stylish leather beltphone pictured, there's a multi-axis rotating flip phone with what looks to be a 16:9 display, a stylish zipline-ready model and an alien flipflop-looking kidphone. No word on pricing or availability since these are just concepts, but we've been predicting a belt / phone hybrid for years now. Hit the read link to check out the rest of the pics.
