Siemens today announced the SK65, a messaging phone with a unique "x2type" (cross-to-type) design. The back half of the phone twists to reveal a full QWERTY text thumboard. The standard version includes a traditional POP / IMAP e-mail client and Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC). Versions with BlackBerry push-email functionality will also be available, including one for individuals, and another version for enterprise e-mail. Other features include a large TFT display, tri-band GSM, class 10 GPRS, Bluetooth, 30 MB of available memory, and SyncML. The SK65 will be available in Europe, Middle East and Latin America in November. Other regions will follow shortly afterwards.

Funny looking but a fantastic idea

I love this form factor, honestly. Let's you maintain the screen orientation and leaves the numpad available while giving you a full qwerty keyboard to type on. What's the OS on this phone going to be?

I'm really hoping that this turns out to be a nice sturdy phone. It would be all too easy for the swivel to be loose or otherwise imperfect.
