Sagem My X8 (2002)

A then innovative concept for a clamshell phone. Its shell is entirely manufactured out of aluminium and the hinge allows the phone to open up 180 degrees to become a straight bar-phone. Its slim and clean design and its restricted choice of materials make it an all-time classic. This phone almost made it to production: the project was stopped for strategic reasons few weeks before market launch in 2003.
