What a ridiculous handset.

I was trying to imagine sending a text message, it makes that madcap Nokia rotary dialer seem positively inspired.

If I want a HSDPA modem I can buy one without silly buttons for a fraction of the price, and then spend all that money I saved on, say, a real phone?

How do you...

How do you spell "Usability Testing" in Japanese?!?!?

I don't think Toshiba knows either...

It's cute, and looks like it was a nice and inspired design for a design engineering student's final project. But someone should have known better than to actually PRODUCE such an unusable keyboard.

This gets a Paris from me as well, because I rarely have a chance to use her...er, her icon that is.
