Kyocera W51K phone
Intended for Japan, Kyocera's W51K is an unusual clamshell phone in that the display can swivel 180 degrees, enabling a more compact shape when the keypad isn't needed. That may be frequent, since the phone also has a 1seg digital TV tuner, and can play downloads from the Lismo media service run by KDDI. An optional charger features a subwoofer, and sits the phone on its side, where it can still play widescreen video on a 2.7-inch display. More conventional features include an FM tuner, plus a microSD slot and 65MB of internal memory for holding local audio and video files. The W51K is out now in metallic blue, orange and silver colors.
