IcePhone – concept mobile with triple-flip

Share

This is pinteresting- a concept mobile phone from a company called “The Medical Phone Ltd”. It’s a triple-flip device complete with touchscreen, QWERTY keyboard, and a third ‘function panel’. It runs Windows Mobile and features GPS, A 3.1 megapixel camera, and Wi-Fi. It runs Windows Mobile 6.0, and features ‘ctrl-alt-delete’ functionality, appararently, which seems a rather strange feature to highlight.

The IcePhone began life as a medical/survival device, and it still retains some of that functionality. There’s one-button access to call 999, your nearest hospital and your doctor simultaneously. It’ll be available in Thailand ‘soon’, but they reckon they’ll have it out in the UK before May next year. The bad news? It’ll be retailing at £670 or so. Pricy.

    The iCEphone is part of a suite of highly innovative mobile phone products designed to save and protect life. iCE (in case of emergency) products feature both hardware and software, which can work independently or in combination. Although originally designed to meet the exacting requirements of the US and British military and the emergency services, the utility of the core technology has also generated significant interest from the consumer marketplace and two versions are now planned – a consumer version and a military/emergency services version.

    The unique, GROUND-BREAKING multiple form-factored iCEphone is the “Swiss Army Knife” of handsets. Beautifully engineered to military standards, it combines QWERTY keyboard Windows Micro notebook with proper mouse, Dual SIM 3G touchphone, Games player with multiple triggers, GPS device with SatNav, and medical emergency software which could save your life.

    The iCEphone is a stunning new micro-notebook phone. It is the Swiss army knife of handsets: it changes shape quickly and easily to be a touch screen phone, micro note-book, a games player, camera and video call handset. It is very much a productivity device, with large keys, designed as the ultimate in convergence devices. As one senior mobile executive remarked – ‘someone has finally figured out how to put a laptop into a mobile phone’. iCEaid is a mobile application that provides emergency first aid advice, based on internationally recognised protocols. This can be at several levels, from someone with no medical training, through first responders to ambulance crews. If this software is used once in a lifetime, it will be worthwhile having it on your phone. There are also accessories designed for specific markets such as the iCEpic (personal information carrier), a USB device designed to carry medical information in a safe secure manner and iCE e-notes, an e-notebook software application for doctors and other healthcare workers.

    The iCE solutions are designed to assist anyone, anywhere in the world affected by a medical emergency, by reducing the time to receive appropriate treatment – the critical factor in emergency medicine. The iCEphone is due for release early in Q2 09 and the Company is seeking distributors and network partners. iCEphone is the brand of The Medical Phone Limited, a new ambitious company set up by a few individuals with significant business, medical, military and mobile phone expertise. They have offices in Edinburgh, London and Bangkok.
