Combined mobile phone and camera. The screen section of the phone (upper frame) is designed to be used either as the phone's earpiece (microphone at top) or as the camera's screen. This screen section can be rotated and twisted into different positions depending on whether the device is being used as a phone or camera. The other section includes a keypad and the phone's mouthpiece (microphone at bottom). The first proper camera phones were developed in the late 1990s, and have been widely commercially available since 2002. This is the P7200 model from the Korean company LG, launched in 2006.
