KT (Korean Telecom) is showing off a concept at IFA they’re calling “SpiderPad” which’ll remind you of the upcoming Asusand the bygone Motorola . This concept involves a variety of devices, all powered by your smartphone. The showcase here shows a 4.5-inch smartphone that can slip into a laptop, power it while the screen probably acting as a trackpad (sticks out a bit), into the back slot of a 10-inch tablet like the Padfone (which seemed to be running Honeycomb), and into a little device with directional pads and buttons that’d turn your phone into a portable console device.
The phone itself, aside from the 4.5-inch 1280 x 800 display also sports a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, so the parent devices would effectively be running on these specs, but they’d each use their own OS, have their own ports and batteries to supplement the phone’s battery. The phone does include a few ports of its own – micro HDMI and micro USB.
There’s no word on when / if this coming to the US or Europe, but a local release of these devices in Korea is expected in November or December at the earliest. Prices remain unannounced.
