Crave UK recently got its hands on the LG GD900 Crystal, a slider phone with a 3-inch touch screen and a transparent keypad that lights up when opened. But it's more than just gimmicky, see-though goodness--the keypad is a touch-sensitive controller, too.

You can swipe the keypad to scroll through the S-class user interface's music and photo gallery, which evokes a cover-flow effect.

You can also fast-forward or rewind through a music track or video with a circular gesture.
