Taiwanese company Polytron Technologies has unveiled what they’re calling the “world’s first transparent cellphone”. At the moment it’s just a prototype, but the company hopes it’ll hit the market by the end of 2013. As you can see, it’s not fully transparent, as many components are not see-through at all. As a matter of fact, we’re not sure about any of the details concerning this potential phone, and we’re just talking about it to raise the topic of whether there’s any benefit in pursuing transparency in cellphone design. What’s to be gained, other the gee-whiz factor? All else being equal, would you guys buy a phone just because it’s transparent?
