Technology:: Bend it like beckham
O yes, technology is bending the rules again and I, I am lovin’ it. Bendy phones sound like science fiction – but the far-out gadgets could be on sale in just a few months’ time.Can’t really comment on who actually pioneered the same but nokia and samsung both are woking on it.
In nokia the new concept phone is part of an online display presented in conjunction with the “Design and the Elastic Mind” . Nokia unveiled a basic prototype of the Nokia Kinetic – a bendable smartphone – at Nokia World. Kinetic allowed users to bend the screen to control functions such as music and video.
Samsung shown off OLED screens which can be folded over. The company demonstrated ‘bendable’ AMOLED screens 4.5 inches across and just 0.3mm thick in January this year.
