Flip phones were at one point all the rage (think Motorola StarTac), but now have been eclipsed by slider and candybar style phones. Not so fast says one company. I present to you the triple flip phone, The iCEphone. I’m not sure about it’s namesake or the companies name (The Medical Phone Ltd) that designed this concept phone, but it sure does look intriguing. Although there’s no actual prototype the company recently attended some unnamed expo and touted it as a ‘survival phone’, which includes such features as a complete first aid survival guide, a simultaneous emergency call button that rings 911 and other medical staff associated with the feature, and last but not least a GPS beacon in case you’re down and out in the mountains of who knows where. Specs say quad-band, HSDPA, 3-inch 240×320 touchscreen, Windows Mobile 6, 3.1MP camera, GPS, WiFi and of course triple screens.
Looks like vaporware to me.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
