Another new screen
The foldable screen, it would appear, is nearly upon us. It seems that numerous proof-of-concept devices have appeared on gadget blogs over the past few years – now, just maybe, the real mccoy might be shipping. The Register(amongst others) reports that Polymer Vision will be shipping its readius phone ‘later this year.’
A potential rival to Amazon’s Kindle or Sony’s eBook, the Readius’ screen rolls out like a sheet of Clingfilm and is primarily designed for displaying text, such as from e-books and RSS feeds, thanks to its 16 levels of grey.
Notably, it’s a phone. Which lends credence to those of us who think that the killer device is going to do more than just be a book reader.
