[NEC shows its future concepts today at Tokyo exhibition.]
Tokyo -- "NEC Corp. announced design models for its future mobile terminals and other products.
"The models were showcased at the exhibition dubbed "TDN@2001" sponsored by Tokyo Design Network (TDN) , a cross-company designer organization of the three companies -- NEC, Canon Inc. and Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.
"In addition to this, NEC introduces such entertainment-oriented communication tools as a mobile video phone and a network player that also works as a mobile phone.
"The mobile phone "palette" (photo) has been developed on the assumption that it will be put on the market in three to five years. It is a folding type that is equipped with a liquid-crystal display and a camera on the upper part when the main body is open like a clam shell. At the lower part it is equipped with touch-panel LCD operator buttons (three down and four across totaling 12 buttons). Each button is a display, and it changes what's showing on it depending on the functions users want to use. Normally, it displays the "menu" items such as an address book, phone, mail, camera and others. When you press the button you want to use, the display of all buttons switches to the entered menu.
