    I thought it was a concept, another company did something like it after it was showed off but it was mon and only a few keys had screens.

    Well looking around on google, it seems that this is just a prototype project, and may not even be released! But then, some say it could be on shelves as early as February. General consensus seems to be $200 - $300, so add import costs and you could be looking at &#163;200!

    That release date is posted on the website of the people who are developing it I'll take their word for it over people who are speculating. (though that release date seems close!!) I think once upon a time it may of been a prototype, but once they saw how much interested it generated they would of been foolish to ignore it.

    Its not April 1st yet is it?

    "It will cost less than a good mobile phone" from the site.

    Engadget have been following this for some time. There are also rumours of a number pad coming out first.

    Well, it depends how what your definition of a good mobile phone..

    A K700i is already a super phone, and they're under &#163;200..

    My guess on the price would probably be hovering around the &#163;200 mark.. maybe more..

    It doesn't say it's being released in Feb, just that they hope to have something then.
