It seems like the introduction of Apple's iPhone and to a lesser extent, LG's Prada phone has seen a return to the drawing board for mobile phone designers. And over at Asus, that drawing board has produced the Asus Aura handset.
The phone, produced by Hungarian design company Egy Studio, is not unlike Apple's handset - but does add a few extra whistles and bells. That includes movable navigation buttons and a sliding QWERTY keyboard, but maintaining a very thin device - just 6mm thick.
Other features include a 3.9-inch touchscreen display, 2 megapixel camera, HSDPA connectivity, along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth plus a microSD memory slot.
That's all very well - but can they turn all that into a retail handset? We'll keep you posted.
