Their screens will be "foldable, rollable, wearable and more, [and] will allow for a high degree of durability through their use of a plastic substrate that is thinner, lighter and more flexible thanů conventional LCD technology," says a Samsung spokesperson.

I look forward to all the new 'self-shots' taken with a rolled-up phone of places that should not be photographed that will flood the seedier websites.  (Which I visit for research purposes)

How much do you reckon they will sell for?

People keep saying this is useless on Facebook but they aren't thinking about all the screens that aren't going to have smashed or broken screens.

Anyone ever see the movie Ultraviolet? In that movie, the disposable cell phones are a stretch of cardboard that's folded over and you dial. :) Kinda cool.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

"Roll it up. Drop it. Squish it in your backpack. Step on it - without any damage."

just my luck i leave it on the train. :no:

This sort of thing will absolutely fly off the shelves at the start, there are many gadget junkies who will buy it, whether they need it or not, and they will pay the money no matter how much.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

After looking at the picture I have decided to call all of them - Dali phones.  Something surreal about a bendable phone.
