iCEphone a mini netbook

The UK's The Medical Phone Ltd. is about to release the iCEphone, a powerful handset meant to act as a portable video game platform, a personal navigation device, 3G-capable smartphone and micro notebook. It has a three-way hinge, allowing users to access its QWERTY keyboard, 3-inch, 240x400-pixel touchscreen display, mouse tracker pad and gaming controls all at the same time or just some of the time, to minimize its footprint.

The phone, whose name stands for In Case of Emergency, has two SIM card slots and is quad band GSM capable as well as supporting GPRS and EDGE networks. Support for the fast 7.2Mbps HSDPA UMTS 2100 connectivity is also present. Data can also be accessed via a built-in b/g Wi-Fi module. It runs on a Freescale iMX31 CPU running at 532MHz and Windows Mobile 6.0 Pro. The 3.1-megapixel camera includes autofocus and LED flash capabilities. The integrated GPS receiver lets the device act as a navigator. The included battery is a 1250mAh unit.

The iCEphone is expected to come to market in Thailand first before coming to the UK sometime in the spring of 2009. Prices are expected to start at under $1,000. [via Unwired View]
