From the forum:
Sony Ericsson's plan is to move away from the standard “candybar" format for their latest camera phone and could adopt a design along the lines of Nokia’s N93 model.

A patent filing from 2003 shows a device strikingly similar to the N93 (pictured below) with claims that it will have a multi directional hinge allowing the phone to be used in a variety of configurations.

The patent was filed before Nokia developed the N93 so it is surprising that there has not been any legal action by boys at Sony Ericsson. source:mad4mobilephones

There is no twist function I can see in either of these handets. There is the ability to "flip back" to have either surface be the exterior of the handset, however.

the ability to be used in a variety of configurations allowed by the multi directional hinge is USELESS!!!
