Video Daily: The incredible Mozilla Labs concept smartphone Mozilla Labs has shown off the Seabird concept smartphone this week, the conclusion of the "Open Web Concept Phone" project which began in early 2009.
The "Mozilla Labs Concept Series" asks the world what they want to see out of certain future devices, as long as they revolve around Firefox, Mozilla and the Open Web.

Billy May, working directly off all the community feedback, has now released a video for "Seabird."

The main new features of the smartphone are dual Pico-projectors, which allow for a fully projected keyboard, effectively turning your phone into a notebook.

Form factor is very slick for the touchscreen concept as well as very thin, while leaving enough room for the dual projectors.

There are no plans for the release of the phone or a Mozilla OS (the Seabird runs on Android), but I'll take a leap here and say there would be few people who wouldn't want to see this phone as a real device.

I like it a lot :D That Bluetooth headset within the phone should be in more newer model phones, I think.

Then again, more people would walk around in public with Bluetooth headsets so maybe not. Awkward hellos are awkward, if you know what I mean.

Also, why does Diamond Dallas Page edit these comments? (First post)
