Coolpad 219 spotted with bizarre keypad

Brian White

With the possibility of an iPhone nano on the way, we were a tad giddy to see another handset with what looked like a rotary dialpad -- though we're still unsold on the concept. Alas, the Coolpad 219 has what appears to be just a normal keypad with music controls and a d-pad in the middle, with a keypad material look reminiscent of the aging RAZR. Retro rules, we suppose, but at leas the Coolpad has a microSD slot, 1.3 megapixel cam and a smaller 220 x 176 display. Now that we think about it, those are pretty standard specs, right? We're not sure what gives with this handset, but see the read link for some close-up pics.
