Microsoft lovers – rue not about the death of kin. A Chinese UI designer named Kingyo has released pictures of a concept phone designed for the Microsoft Windows Mobile 7 platform that Microsoft could take inspiration from.
The futuristic-looking concept phone named Blue Bee is specially integrated with social networking features and exploits the front-side real estate to the maximum by pushing the physical button to the backside of the phone. The Blue Bee ‘back touch’ button is programmed to do several functions like scrolling, moving ‘forward’ or ‘back’ on a webpage or return to the home screen by a double tap.
You may remember that Apple had filed a patent application for backside touch controls not so long ago. Nevertheless, the concept looks interesting and I would definitely love to buy one of these phones. How about you.
