Want to Switch Your Smartphone OS? Just Swap the Cartridge
The smartphone OS wars are in full swing. But why should you be forced to settle on one smartphone OS? Why not have multiple ones? Yesterday we spotted a hacked HTC H2 that can dual-boot Windows Phone 7 and Android, but a new concept design by Antoine Brieux on display at Yanko Design takes the idea one step further.
The "Tube" concept phone would let you boot into different smartphone OSes--and upgrade to a higher storage capacity--just by swapping out the cartridge (think of a Nintendo Game Boy).
It sounds like a pretty cool concept, but I have to wonder, how much would each cartridge cost?
Head on over to Yanko Design for more mockups.
