At the 3GSM Asia event in Macau, recently, a new Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional smartphone was shown off, dubbed the iCEphone. Built by TheMedicalPhone, this peculiar smartphone features a three-paneled form factor, allowing the user to choose between a QWERTY keyboard, a gaming-oriented keypad, or the 3" touchscreen display. The phone gets its name from the dedicated emergency button that, when pressed, sends the current GPS location and other information to emergency services in the area.

The iCEphone also features a ruggedized casing, offering protection from shock and water. The iCEphone is set to be available in Q2 2009, priced at US$1000, and is being targeted at military and other government uses.
