Sanyo's Wi-Fi 3G mobile

Mobile phones

At Ceatec Sanyo has been titillating Japanese phone-aholics with a prototype of a forthcoming 3G phone.

The as yet un-monikered device is unique in that it sports a double rotating hinge with two flip open sections which can be customized to suit the user’s requirements. So in theory one could be a QWERTY keyboard while the other offer access to a set of short cuts.

The phone’s other most notable feature is that it apparently includes integrated wi-fi.

Sanyo wouldn’t say if the phone will become a real world product but we suspect it has plans for something along the lines of the model for late in 2005.
