Clamshell phone concept MyX8 (2002). A then innovative concept for a clamshell phone. Its shell is entirely manufactured from a solid block of aluminum 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.
