Mobile phones

Boy Genius may’ve revealed the BlackBerry KickStart to the world earlier in the month, however has brought us more news (and pictures!) of the clamshell smartphone.

They’ve also detailed the experience of using the first flip BlackBerry, saying it “will be like all Flip phones” when using the calling-function, so when a call comes through simply flipping the phone will connect you, and closing the flip will cancel the call. As you can see from the picture above, there’s an external LCD which will display the caller’s details.

Likewise,when receiving an email, IM, SMS and MMS message, opening the clamshell will display it.
