Samsung OZ Double Phone

Samsung has recently introduced its newest 3G-network compatible flip phone, the SPH-W6450. The phone's top half can also open sidways as well as straight up with the screen facing the user, much like a notebook PC. The LCD screen is sized at 2.8 inches, features a 240x400 resolution and has a virtual touchpad for use in notebook mode that takes the place of a mouse. Another common high-end feature of Korean phones includes the DMB tuner that lets users watch streaming video content from eight broadcasters as well as audio content from nine sources.

In addition, there is a 3-megapixel camera that swivels with the screen, allowing for video calls in either configuration, MP3 playback capability and Bluetooth 2.0 support. A full web browser is built-in, as is a file viewer and electronic dictionary: another feature ubiquitous to Korean phones.

The SPH-W6450 is so far only available in Korea, priced at the equivalent of about $400. If the handset or a variation of it ever comes to North America, it will not include a DMB tuner. [via Akihabara]
