KT, a Korean-based telecommunications provider has unveiled a concept smartphone that can morph into a gaming handheld, a tablet or even a laptop. Dubbed 'Spider Phone', the device can mimic the abilities of Motorola's Atrix or ASUS' Padfone. The device itself can connect to various accessories that expand its capabilities. There would be a laptop dock that adds a QWERTY keyboard, an extended battery, and USB ports for adding a mouse or an external hard drive, all whilst relying on the phone itself as a touchpad.



The tablet shell also includes its own battery, as well as featuring a 10.1-inch display while adding a few slate-friendly tweaks to the UI. Finally, the gaming dock is a simple cradle with a D-pad and buttons for those who want some serious Android gaming fun. The phone itself sports a dual-core Qualcomm processor clocked in at 1.5GHz, 16GB of internal memory, a 4.5-inch screen with a 1280x800 resolution, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 3-megapixel front-facing camera, Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread with a KT UI overlay.


The Spider Phone is set to launch in Korea sometime in either November or December, as for pricing - there's nothing available at the moment.
