Well there is a little more information on the UIQ site here (http://www.uiq.com/uiq/uiqhome.nsf/0/804C389887BA083DC1256DBF004F8E13?OpenDocument).
It looks to me like the front panel with numbers covers the whole of the screen and flips upwards to expose the full screen. If so, I like this design as it provides better screen protection over the P900. Also having a directional pad is a big addition.
Sounds goods lets just hope they get round to releasing it in a senseable timescale..
