The app “provides sentence and phrase translation on an easy-to-use, hand-held smart phone.” The Nexus One seen in the photo on Defence Talk would lead one to believe they are using Android as their mobile platform of choice.
If only this were true… Too bad, it’s only a render at this point, but it’s looking really fancy. What is it? It’s a triple-screen phone with a hardware keyboard put somewhere on the inside and looks quite complicated to handle.
