    Just a week after Nokia VP hinted at flexible/bendable screens for Lumia by spring, Samsung is said to release a device with said tech by the end of the year.

    Did I read that right? A flexible screen covered by inflexible glass?

    If you follow the links you come to this: A Samsung Flexible Display Patent Emerges, Products due in 2013 - Patent Bolt

    The inflexible glass is probably going to be the main display, covering the flexible screen. The links show possible designs, like pullout screens, to extend viewing space, and then maybe bend them like a book. Pretty cool stuff. I just hope Samsung brings this to WP8 devices too and not just Android.

    Ah well. Samsung is great at throwing everything in but the kitchen sink, but their phones are still shiny cheap plasticky crap. Nokia's implementation will be classier than anything that would ever come out of Korea.

    But they are thin and light and hold up well in my experience with the original focus! So no complaints on that from me!

    Even still, it said it was 1/3 the thickness (1.8 mm to 0.6)...so it is flexible AND thin, but the companies are just going to be able to take advantage of the THIN part so far.

    They do hold up well. I think there is much more quality there than you would suspect based on how they look and feel.

    I just can't get past the look and feel though. My Lumia feels like it weighs 100 lbs compared to a Samsung, but I love the fact that it feels substantial and has a durable finish that isn't glossy.

    I cannot stand glossy plastic on electronics. It's just amazingly impractical. Reminds me of cheap crappy Best Buy PC laptops smeared with fingerprints and gleaming with cheap fake plastichrome.

    That look is a perfect compliment for the cheap and tasteless Android OS though. But Windows Phone and iOS are more elegant and they deserve a more mature looking phone IMO.
