At CEATEC Japan 2008, Fujitsu and DoCoMo showed off their “Separate Ketai” cell phone concept that literally splits into two pieces. Specifically, the display screen and the keyboard are detachable to allow the user to use the phone as they see fit. Want to use the phone as a flip-phone? Go ahead. Want a slider? Sure. How about a game pad? No problem. The secret is that the two pieces are both touchscreen, except one is responsible for displaying the information, while the other acts as the input device. They are also magnetically connected, so you can easily pull apart or put back together.
