Packet phone concept looks awesome, surreal

Packet Concept Phone

Here’s an interesting mobile phone concept designed by Emir Rafat. The cool thing about it is that it’s made to be an all-in-one device, sporting a total of 5 touchscreens which change to suit the current application used. That being said, you can use a numeric keypad or a full QWERTY keyboard which is divided on two screens.

Packet phone concept measures 5×5 cm, it’s extremely thin and lightweight, and is thus ideal to carry around. The problem, though, is that I don’t see it being released in the next 5 to 10 years. Hack, I can’t imagine it being released even after 10 years. Most of the technologies needed for the device are already on the market — including thin touchscreens, fuel cell batteries (which could provide sufficient power for such a small device), single multiple radio chip solutions. Still, it seems like a huge step forward which would involve a great paradigm shift. Not that I wouldn’t want such a device, quite the opposite – I would love it! So I wasn’t surprised to learn Packet phone concept won first place at the Istanbul Design Week.
