For those who think clamshell cell phones are outdated and low-tech compared to smartphones, you haven't met the Samsung SCH-W999 yet.

The Samsung SCH-W999 is a mobile that completely revamps the clamshell style. This model is backed up by Android software, which means it has all the capabilities of a smartphone. What's interesting about the SCH-W999 is its dual screen panel that displays and allows access to all the phone's features even in the closed position. This phone packs 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8660, a five-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi. Although a bit bulky, the design still has a slick look, complete with a HyperSkin back cover that offers a better grip for the hand.
