How do you arrive at a smartphone concept in which you aren't sacrificing the dimensions of a large display for a working keyboard? Seunggi Baek shows you the answer in the form of the Bubble Phone.

Firstly, the size of the mobile phone is already quite broad and provides ample space for a roomy typing pad and a generous screen. With the keys of the first and the borders of the second having been extended right to the edges of the handset, this cellphone is one up on the most cutting-edge BlackBerry devices.

But flip the Bubble Phone over and you'll find a full glossy touchscreen on the back as well. Watch videos, browse pictures and surf the internet on this side, and transcribe your texts and emails on the other. Stats for Extruded Display Keyboards Trending: Older & Warm
