The LG-GD900 cellphone, which was unveiled a couple ofdays ago, has one of the most striking designs we've seen. Its head-turning innovation: The softly illuminated keypad is transparent. The phone is slated for a spring 2009 release. We can't wait until someone designs a phone that's entirely clear.

However, we have to ask, how practical is this? Do you really want to see a hairy cheek pressed up against the glass? It reminds me of the old Jelly shoes. Cute, until you see someone's butt-ugly toes smooshed up against the plastic.
