Docomo shows off two-piece, dual interface cell phone

The Japan-based CEATEC conference has come and gone, but one incredible item we neglected to mention at the show was the NTT Docomo Separate Keitai. The prototype device lives up to its name with the ability to break into two separate parts displaying different interfaces depending on its magnetically connected orientation. Both parts can also be used separately allowing phone calls to be continued while simultaneously checking email on a separate screen. Docomo hasn't announced a release date for when the prototype will go commercial but for now you can check out the phone in action here.
