Before you get excited, the Google G0 isn't a real Android phone. It's not coming out anytime soon and heck, it'll probably never be built. But boy is it one sexy device.

Taiwanese designer Tryi Yeh came up with this Android Phone concept and aside from its beautiful design, it has some pretty interesting features. Though it's billed as a slider-type device, the slide function only reveals a camera on one end and four customizable multi-functional buttons on the face--a pretty neat idea. Also drool worthy: the end-to-end touchscreen.

Sorry for showing these pictures to you guys since you may never look at your T-Mobile G1 the same ever again but man, what we would do to get a real production unit of this G0..

Google G0 Android Phone Concept is Drool Worthy


I know its a concept, but I think it would need to slide out to a full keyboard, then just four buttons. If it ever hit the market and I wanted to buy it, that would be the only way I would buy it. I hate trying to text on a soft keyboard.

I don't see the point of having four context buttons, you may as well just put them on the bottom of the screen like the start bar on winmo. this is nice looking but not well thought out...

the point of a slide out is to allow more buttons to be packed in a device, if that's not there, then there's no point. it would just be an extra hassle. Already people using the G1 prefer to type in some quick info without sliding keyboard. Plus mechanical slides do break down over time more so than electronic components.

physical keyboards on smartphones will go away like the typewriter did because it costs more and adds bulk.
