Actually, the Separate Keitai is one phone that can be split into two parts. Each part is synced with each other via Bluetooth wireless technology, and can attach and reattach by a simple magnet. In all honesty, I didn’t think I would ever need such a phone, until I heard what it could do.
The Separate Keitai can attach vertically (image on the left) or horizontally (image on the right). As you can see, the vertical attachment brings up a numeric keypad, while the horizontal attachment brings up a QWERTY keyboard. It is even possible to turn this horizontal function into a gamepad for some mobile video game action.
While a user is making a call, he or she can check their email or electronic schedule on the separate unit. They can even use the separate unit as an MP3 player.
Well, I sure want one of these now. Unfortunately, the company has stated that the Separate Keitai is “a concept model so we have not decided a schedule for practical application”. Too bad.
