Cutting Edge: Transparent Smartphone Prototype

Polytron of Taiwan gave Mobile Geeks a rare chance to check out an early prototype for a see-thru smartphone. It's still in the earliest stages, so it can't make calls yet and many of the components will have to be hidden behind an opaqe panel but this could be a real life version of Tony Stark's (Robert Downey Jr) Phone/PDA from Iron Man 2.

I don't know if I'd really want a transparent phone that would be almost invisible when you put it down or drop it and the display isn't backlit yet so checking you email/caller ID in a dark room is out, but it is so cool that somebody is working on this. Don't expect to see these at Best Buy any time soon but Polytron is hoping to see limited production by the end of the year.
