Mozilla Shows Off Awesome Smartphone Concept

Those Facebook phone rumors were pretty weird, huh? Well, here's another one for you: Mozilla is dipping its toes into the smartphone pool and this isn't just a rumor. The company has a cell phone concept and, though it has no plans to build the phone, the design is pretty genius.

The phone was designed by Mozilla Labs community member Billy May as part of Mozilla's concept series, a project that invites people to share their vision of what the future has in store for the Web and Mozilla. May utilized community feedback before arriving at the final concept for what he's calling the Seabird.

May says that Seabird focuses on the fact that a lot of people find issue with the input methods present in today's smartphones. By incorporating two pico projectors, the phone can project images onto a wall or screen (45 Lumens at 960x600) while simultaneously projecting a keyboard onto the user's desk. Alternatively, the projectors can be used to project one half of a full-size QWERTY keyboard onto the table on either side of the phone.

The phone also features an 8-megapixel camera, an embedded Bluetooth dongle, wireless charging, Mini USB and a detachable Bluetooth headset that doubles as a wireless mouse for the device.

Check out the video of the phone below and tell us you don't want it.
