Samsung Phone with EInk Keyboard

Engadget (Samsung Alias 2 launching on May 11, E Ink confirmed?) seems pretty sure the Samsung Alias 2 has an EInk keyboard, with reconfigurable key labels. It also has a dual hinge design like the Samsung SCH-U740 (Alias). So the reconfigurable keyboard helps when switching between portrait and landscape modes. More pictures at phonearena.com.

cool, but the phone looks stupid, and that Hinge Design breaks all the time, my brother went though 5 of them in 2 years on a similar phone

Hmm... the only problem I see with an eink keyboard is that you wouldn't be able to backlight the keys. Hopefully they found some way around this. (a phone without lit keys would be useless to me at night)
