Sony Ericsson Zento Android Concept has Barely an Edge

We've recently become addicted to conceptual design in Android devices, and we've found that the fountain scarcely runs try. The following concept is known as the Sony Ericsson Zento, an Android smartphone by Frank Tobias. If this phone were to ever take fruition, it would be one bad mother. Oddly enough, this badness starts with Android 3.0 Honeycomb which, as you know is optimized for tablets, not smartphones. On the other hand, this device has a 4.4 in touchscreen, so perhaps the size qualifies.

Xeta concept phone boosts specs for Honeycomb

It's called the Xeta, and it's a simple, yet elegant concept phone created by designer Frank Tobias for Sony Ericsson. On it's face, it may look like just another Android phone. But looks are deceiving. Check out what may be under the hood. Designed to run the very tablet centric Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the Xeta is to be powered by a 2Ghz dual core CPU running the Sony Mobile Bravia Engine. Which is plenty of power to support a massive 4.2 inch multitouch display that nearly covers the entire phone. Layout wise, the Xeta looks to sport three buttons including a center square that suspiciously looks like a "cut and paste" of an Apple mobile device power button.

HTC Cartridge Phone Works with Android, WP7, Whichever OS you Like

The following is a concept phone by a designer by the name of Antoine Berieux, and it consists of an outer shell and an inner cartridge, this inner bit being able to be switched, each cartridge containing a completely different OS or iteration of OS. Like physical ROM switching at the click of a hatch!

Android Phone Concept Features Three Flexible AMOLED Touchscreens

Let's face it, smartphones, at least in their current form, are becoming dull and standard. Everyone is looking for the "newest" form factor for their phones but honestly they're just all coming out looking the same. Introducing a phone concept that leaves us wanting more with its ultra-sleek 3-panel design.

Conceptual Design for Porsche Smartphone is Sleek, Hot, Amazing

It's made with some slick aluminum, glass front, 3.8 inch display, 1042 x 640 pixel resolution, 3D camera system on the back (2 cameras) with 5Mexapixels each and HD 720p video with stereo sound, and that's only the beginning! This is the "P'9530" Porsche smartphone by designer André Duarte Silva, straight outta the hallways of conceptual design publishers Yanko Design. Also included in this phone is a hidden speaker blasting from between the glass and the aluminum at the top, premium materials selected by Porsche engineers, instant record button, and more!

Google Gesture Search out for Android 2.x

Google has just released their gesture search application that we first saw demonstrated during last year’s Google I/O by Romain Guy. It was just a concept back then but now all Android users that have 2.0 or higher can now download this app from the market.

1 Cross MID “hybrid” Concept

This will be the first MID in a series of products from 1 Cross. It's Android based and is a mix between an e-reader and a tablet. 1 Cross will name this hybrid the ShuBook which is Chinese for book. When closed it looks like a traditional book, open it up and you will reveal dual screens. One e-reader and a smaller screen with a built in qwerty keyboard.

Google-G0 concept Android smartphone with wireless dock

It seems like a long time since we've seen a good Android concept device, or at least one that isn't an obvious derivative of an existing handset.  Thankfully designer Tryi Yeh has stepped forward with his Google-G0 concept, a touchscreen-dominated slider with a wireless charging cradle. Yeh is short on description for his concept, but going from the images he envisages the G0 seemingly including all the usual Google apps together with Flash support.  The hardware slides open to reveal the camera (of unspecified resolution) and a row of four hardware buttons which can - thanks to embedded displays - offer various contextual controls. The docking station seems modular, either taking the form of a basic wireless dock similar to the Palm Pre's Touchstone charger, or attaching to a larger desktop display with integrated speakers.  Unfortunately, this eye-catching smartphone is just a concept.
