At CEATEC 2008, Fujitsu and NTT Docomo are showcasing a concept phone that can be split into two pieces, a screen and a keyboard segment. The so-called Separeeto Keitai, separate handset, is supposed to enable users to make a phone call and write emails at the same time.
The parts are joined by a magnet and connected via Bluetooth. The touchscreen reacts to the way the users are holding it. In vertical position, it shows a numeric keypad. When horizontally attached, the touchscreen will switch to character entry mode or display a “virtual” game pad so that users can write emails or play games.
