Microsoft Mobile oFone

Seeing as the Zune was such a hit, Microsoft decided to repeat the success and tackle the iPhone before it even gets out the gate; friends, I give you the Microsoft oFone. Not to be outdone by Apple's multi-touch keyless interface, the oFone features not one or two, but three keyboards that can all pivot about the small central screen. With multiple keypads, there is no need for wireless connectivity for gaming (see video). Need to bag some wild game for dinner? No worries, oFone can do that too, simply extend the three arms (like in the pic to the right) and it apparently makes a decent boomerang. I'm loving where they're going with this idea -- cool and unusable, just how I like my fake phones.
