Sony Ericsson Mobile Terminal

. Sony Ericsson's patent application for their Mobile Terminal can be classified as strange, since this is a bracelet-type handset that can also be used in a two-hand mode whenever there is a need to send a flurry of text messages.

…when the mobile phone terminal is worn like a bracelet by putting the ring section on the user’s arm or the like, the portability of the mobile phone terminal is improved, and the user can see the display surface of the display device and can operate the key buttons with fingers of the other arm different from the arm on which the ring section is worn. On the other hand, when the ring section is removed from the arm, the user easily can see the display surface of the display device of the terminal body section while holding the ring section with both hands and operating the key buttons, which can achieve high operability and convenience.

This is definitely one of the more radical handset designs to date, so it will be interesting to see whether Sony Ericsson engineers are up to the task in turning dreams to reality.
