The Superphone Non-Invasion

MiuSuperphones of the world, unite! And come over to the states, please; we’re getting antsy. The announcements for sweet new phones keep rolling in, and sure, the states have some cool stuff, but that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t wholly embrace these international goodies. Read on to see what we adore about the coming-not-anytime-soon phones of the future. Samsung Anycall Haptic The Samsung Anycall Haptic (available in Korea) demonstrates the marvel of haptic touch. Reminiscent of that iWhatchamacallit, the Anycall features a 3.2-inch hypersensitive touchscreen vibration feedback and a new, innovative user interface that lets you customize the menu and organize applications to your liking via drag-and-drop functions. You (would) get full Internet browsing, a 2-MP camera, digital TV streaming, and Bluetooth 2.0, natch. (Yahoo)

LG OZ The LG OZ (available in Japan and Korea) suffers from a case of identity crisis, but we endorse the madness when the personality is split between mobile phone and digicam. This clamshell features a 180-degree rotating, 2.8-inch WVGA LCD at a squint-free 800 x 400-pixel resolution. LG’s press release boastfully notes that most phone (and camera) screens max out at 320 x 240 pixels. Partnering with Casio on this phone-camera lovechild, the OZ tacks on a 28mm wide-angle lens, shake correction, and nine-point autofocus. The phone side rocks 3G speeds for smooth Internet and e-mail access and, why not, VoIP support. (LG via Engadget)

Miu HDPC Evidently inspired by the Zack Morris phone, we’ll admit we’re still pretty jealous of the HDPC from Miu (shown at upper right). This beefy block of mobile wealth houses a phone, GPS capability, a gaming device, an MP3 player, an e-book reader, a digital camera, and a sense of smug satisfaction to whomever buys one.
