In other words it follows the design and ideas of my last phone(tiny phone.
The phone is about 5.5 cm tall closed and 9 cm open
It uses a seetrough lcd similar to a older phone would have used, this helps the battery.
The buttons on the sides pops the screen up.
The Images shows the phone closed and open

But......saying that I like how you have simplified the design, sometimes its nice to keep things simple and straight foward and not clutter it with 100 features.
Maybe try to think about ergonomics a bit more with the concepts, I know this product is small but obviously the bigger the width the harder it is to grip, and keeping a phone balanced is also important, not just visually but physically.
Does your phone have any connectivity features? I know it is nice for a concept but sometimes even a concept needs some thought about internals, even if it is just looking at the ports on a phone....I guess it will always help to develop a concept into a realised product if ever taken foward.
I dont mean to sound negative, cool work though

I still think camera and colour screens are "useless", it may be nice on some designs. I have a feeling that phone manufactures seem to use technologi as a sellingpoint just for the technologies sake(hope this makes sense), and I think very few people use half of the features on their phones.
Physical balance(so it stayes in you hand) should be achieved by the battery under the keypad and that the pieces that look like metal is metal(the extra weight should give a feel of quality aswell).
connectivity features... I know you like that they are on modells, but they are largly desided by software and brand(usb, headset, etc.) so I will not put them on there(they would be on the bottom).
And Im glad you like it.

Thank you, I hope its my creativity.
I'll see what I can do to get my designes produced so you can get one

I have a camera on my phone and I hardly ever use it, it just pretty much take up space and bulky. I can sure go for a phone that can be chain up to my key ring.

I like it a lot and I think that your idea about clear design and without useless features is very good one. If someone produces this one or any similar mobile phone without camera and other extras I will buy it for sure. I'm using different gadgets and other hi-tech devices but sometimes I just wish to have something simple and straight to the point. And your design is just like that...
Good work mate.

Maybe it's the design that capture the consumer, I like how you use clear plastic and illuminating numbers that makes it look sexy.

Maybe it's because of the unusual form factor or because it reminds me of an old razor knife or because it's - in my eyes - more reduced than this one.
It's a nice phone, no doubt but I've got one question:
Where is the accumulator situated?
Since the phone is spereated by the display (approximately in the middle) there would't be much space left for the battery, right?
I'm also using a very thin and very small phone (VK Mobile 2020, 8,8mm thick) and if you open it up, most of the space is used by the accu (the backlight for the keys is via electroluminiscent foil - keys incl. lighting have an aprox. thickness of 1mm (or even less)).
Also another thing that came to my mind is:
Where is the antenna - it's internal, that's obvious - but in such a small phone you'd cover the whole antenna with your hand (when you're using the phone), which would lead to a very bad reception - a way to work around this would be to increase the transmitting power which would lead to a highe battery consumption and to a higher rediation level.

The camera is kind of a dilemma. I use mine pretty often for taking quick pictures of things, but I would use it a lot more if the quality didn't suck. However, I don't want to carry a giant phone just to get a decent camera. All the other "features"- MP3, games, crappy internet access, I can gladly do without.

So, when will I be able to get it, and what would it cost me?
Also, it would be nice if you had any idea of what it will contain. I know you want to keep it as simple as possible, and thats great, but does it have sms feature?
How long (roughly) will the battery last?
Which networks does it work with? -I live in Norway btw.
Any memory at all?
Anyway, it's the most amazing design i've seen, and I'm a serious buyer!
