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, we 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. Need to bag some wild game for dinner?
No worries, oFone can do that too, simply extend the three arms (like in the pic above) and it apparently makes a decent boomerang.
We're loving where they're going with this idea -- cool and unusable, just how we like our fake phones.
Check the vid after the break.
