From the forum:
Here's an interesting design for a Candybar Style Walkman Phone,it has the ipodish jog dial for the music funtions.

This concept design is made by Industrial Designer Torbjörn Eriksson,with a surname like that what else could you expect from a designer but a Sony Ericsson phone.

Torbjörn Eriksson did his Masters Degree in Industrial Design at the Ingvar Kamprad Design Center, IKDC (Founded by IKEA) at the Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University, Sweden,you can see the rest of his C.V (Resume) Here,So although others might not agree, i would say this concept has some pedigree.

Although this concept will most likely never see the light of day,with a few minor alterations this one could be a winner for Sony Ericsson if the suits at the top took a look at this seriously.

they are trying to look at a competitor to the ipod in that phone. not easy to text with, which is quite basically what any person that would like an ipod-rip-off design to do :)

good looking concept, but if the buttons would be replaced, and the phone wud be made a touch screen walkman, then it would be a beauty! :)

The concept is good.. but still, originality is the best! (SE doesn't need to imitate ipod)

It is just good as a concept and it will be better if it remains as a concept believe me i own a K750i and it looks 100 times better then that freak show.

No phone makers should ever, ever create a phone that has buttons like this. Although they look different, the NK 3650 and Siemen's Xilibri products proved that they're a disaster!

Overall are great concept phone but not quite sure about the button though..

I really don`t like because it is very strange, i can`t imagine myself with that SE in my hands, the sms`s would be a complete disaster, think about it!

just because all of our little arthritic thumbs are used to the standard 4*3 button layout doesnt mean it wont be hard to learn...

For messaging the keypad sucks! A complete joke

What if Sonyericsson lets us consumers to design a phone at the same time will we also choose the best. That's good right?? because this design doesn't amazed me.

Retarded! Simply a joke. Dialpad looks like a Nokia 3650+3660.

WOW...looks like Taurus Excreta!!!

U dont need to be a industrial designer or all that...i know many passionate SE lovers who make stunning concepts of se phones in Photoshop.

If SE need ideas on design perhaps it would be wiser to consult and implement ideas from their japanese buddies
