The MPx looks to be a very different type of phone that offers the user a horizontal or vertical alignment when being used and will include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Tri-band GSM/GPRS, SD slot, 320x240 2.8 inch screen, 1.3 MP integrated camera and a QWERTY layout keyboard. We hear it might also come equipped with a built in hand/hair dryer to squelch any perception there was a feature left out.
