>> Hi, I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com here at CES 2009 and I'm taking a first look at the iCE phone from a company called the medical phone. Now, there are a couple interesting things about this phone. One is the form factor, you can see it's actually a tri-panel phone. They say it's the world's first tri-panel phone design. I know obviously that it mean it's not the slimmest phone that you've ever seen, but it actually not as bad as you might expect considering that it essentially has two keyboards. Now, they're pitching this as almost like a mini notebook kind of application. They've got a QWERTY keyboard here and then all of the control keys like Alt, Control, Shift, Escape are down here on the bottom. So the idea is that you would lay it down, type like this and use your thumbs to control it. But then they say you could also whip it like this, put the screen up like that and have these deals here and then play video games. We'll see! The iCE phone also has a 3-megapixel camera and built-in GPS which is all the rage in the smart phones these days. Now, one other interesting thing about this phone is that it comes with software that allows you to store your medical records on the phone and it also is equipped with the complete first aid kit. They're really pitching this as a phone that could save your life. Now, in terms of the specs, it's running Windows Mobile 6. It is equipped with Wi-Fi and it's a GSM phone, so it would world phone compatible when it is available in hopefully the second or third quarter of 2009. They do say it's gonna retail for a little under a thousand dollars US, so you can hope that a carrier picks it up and wants to save your life that way too. Again, I'm Molly Wood for CNET.com here at CES 2009 with the iCE phone. ^M00:01:39 [ Music ]
