Mozilla Reveals Seabird "Community" Firefox Phone

Mozilla Labs came up wtih an impressive looking mobile phone concept that it calls Seabird or as Bill May, the guy who came up with the concept back in 2009, puts it an "open web concept phone".

The organisation has already confirmed that it has no intention of producing a mobile phone and is instead concentrating on delivering Firefox for Mobile for Maemo and Android.

Seabird is an idea rather than a product bound for production and involves an OS based on Android (à la Facebook), a 8-megapixel camera, two side pico-projectors (45 lumens at 960x600 pixels) that project a keyboard on a plain surface, wireless charging (by induction of course) and even an embedded Bluetooth dongle.

We're not sure about the design though because Mozillalabs thinks that "decidedly feminine forms" with an "erect posture" would be a good idea. While it does provide with a built-in stand (no kickstand here), it will not suit everyone's need.

It may use a docking station as well which doubles as a charger (like Palm's touchstone) and would allow Seabird to project a full keyboard to enable "netbook-quality interaction".

Amongst other features proposed in the video, we've noted audio jack, mini USB, Bluetooth handset (that allows panning and zooming in 3D space), haptic clicking and IR tracking.

As a bonus, there's even a 3D version of the video below here.
