Fujitsu’s dual-touchscreen phone is next big thing in smartphones

It was in the Mobile World Congress in February that we first had a glimpse of a dual-screen phone interface from TAT. Then it seemed so futuristic, but seven odd months down, we have a collaborative effort from Fujitsu and TAT to deliver a dual-screen mobile phone. Shown at CEATEC, the prototype phone features two big 960 x 480 touchscreens placed right next to each other in a very clamshell design. The phone has also shown with browser and email list scrolling on both displays, with a photo sharing feature that lets you chuck images from the gallery on the bottom display to the contact list in the screen above. The very cool feature however is that both the displays can be rotated between portrait and landscape. When could this reach production you ask, well it’ll take a good one year at least we guess, nonetheless we’ll keep you posted.
