This concept would let you customize the look of the phone by sliding its tiles around.

If this concept ever takes off, personalizing your phone could be taken to a whole new level. We're not sure who the target audience of the Easy Tiles phone might be: Children, or adults who act like children. Whatever it is, designer Tzu-Fu Wang's concept should appeal to the child in all of us. The entire casing is made of movable tiles set on a transparent frame. This lets you customize the look of the phone just by sliding the tiles around, or replacing them altogether. According to the rendered picture, the handset runs on the familiar S60 platform, but seriously, what we're concerned with is what happens if we drop the handset. More pieces to shuffle around? Totally mind-boggling.
