Once in a great while, a device launches that is simply boggling. Akihabara News reports on the BPhone Quad Band cell phone. This weird-ass device features a 5” 180 degree rotating QVGA touchscreen. The processor is 624 MHz and comes from Marvell. This phone has 256 MB of RAM and a full QWERTY keyboard, plus GPS and FM Radio.
This odd little duck runs on ARM-Linux 2.6. It is WiFi, Bluetooth, and Java-enabled. It supports TXT, MP3, WAV, AMR, and AWB audio, plus 3GP and MPEG4, plus JPEG/BMP/GIF. This “phone” looks more like a tablet-book than an actual phone itself. The UI design seems frankly delightful, it's a bit of a let-down that the specs aren't better.
