Mitsubishi M900 Clamshell Camera Phone

It's Quite a Handful
Due to an extra row of buttons for controlling the camera functions, the profile of the M900 is a shave thicker than most regular clamshell phones. It's also elongated along its vertical axis as the CCD image sensor is squeezed into the back of the phone and not in a dugout commonly found in the flip piece of clamshell camera phones. Positioning the lens in this manner allows the M900 to be handled in a similar fashion as one would with a digital camera.
The M900 is manufactured entirely out of plastic and a bright silver coating has been sprayed on to give it a contemporary look. A pair of chrome strips accompanies the external LCD and this prevents the phone from casting a completely plastic appearance. With buttons and I/O jacks laid out on both flanks of the phone, the M900 appears cluttered and this look might not appeal to everyone.
