Funny looking but a fantastic idea
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.

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?
wierd. i want more pictures..
