KT’s Spider phone morphs into a laptop, tablet and game console

Just when you think every phone idea was thought of something else comes to light. Korean company KT just launched an interesting concept phone called Spider at IFA similar to the Asus Padfone. KT’s Spider Concept has three different accessories that expand the capabilities of the 4.5-inch Android Gingerbread device. This concept phone will have a laptop dock that adds a QWERTY keyboard, bigger screen, an extended battery and a revamped UI while relying on the phone itself as the touchpad. Second, there’s the Spider PAD tablet shell which bump the interface up to 10.1-inches while adding a few tab-friendly tweaks. Last is the gaming dock, a simple cradle with a D-pad and buttons that connects to the Spider via Bluetooth.

The phone itself is a beast, bundling 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor and the 4.5-inch screen has a beautiful 1280 x 800 resolution. It’s simply remarkable that all of these features are jammed packed into a piece of hardware just 9.34mm (0.37-inches) thin. The Spider phone is expected to launch in Korea in either November or December, with no word as to what the price and international availability is. Below, check out these pair of videos showing the concept phone in action.
