Look up, peasant, from your soot-stained hands. Drop that shovel into the furrowed ground and gaze upon the magic* that Mozilla has wrought. Concept designer Billy May, working through Mozilla's \"Open Web Concept Phone\" project, has gathered community feedback and followed up on some rather mundane

Looking for some innovation to go with your porridge this morning? How about this fan-made flip phone concept that pivots vertically and horizontally? You can use it as a standard old clamshell, with the lower of the two displays acting as your number pad, or you can rotate it down to pair the scre

Designer Andrew Kim has cooked up a concept smartphone for HTC dubbed the \"1\" that makes the company's current offerings look, well... last generation. The device, built from a brass housing (coated in silver) eschews the phone-maker's recent crop of fairly standard looking mobile devices for somet

Good news and bad news: the good news is that we got to look at Synaptics' Fuse concept phone, which pairs capacitive touch overload with tilt sensing, squeeze sensing and a fair bit of haptics. The bad news is that Synaptics is holding off on showing the actual UI until MWC in February. So for now

It's an all too brief look, but it's infinitely more than we've seen so far. CNET Asia has managed some hands-on time the Zii Trinity concept smartphone. Quite a looker, and here we also get a glimpse of it next to the good ol' Zii Egg. As noted by the narrator, the bottom proprietary slot can be s

As much as we adore this concept, we're not even remotely hopeful something like this will become a reality within the next score or so. That said, we'd love to be proven wrong, as the Conduit is quite possibly the most fantastic phone design to ever be conceived. With a hint of steampunk, a dash o

Audi has dabbled in cellphone-to-car interfaces in the past, but it now looks to be stepping things up in a big way, with its new metroproject concept system sporting its very own, apparently self-designed cellphone / do-it-all device. In addition to doubling as a cellphone, the handset (which boas

Japan's Willcom wants earthquake and tsunami situations not to affect your wireless calls or your emergency lighting. By that, we mean that the \"Torch Light\" handset can be used as an emergency lighting device (say, if power goes out) and will allow you to place that all-important call if local cel

You know, it's too bad that BenQ-Siemens' European operations had to go under before it managed to get this slick handset out the door. From what we can make out based on these photos spotted on a Czech website, BenQ-Siemens had developed a \"Black Box concept phone,\" which took home some Chinese d
