    Unfortunately, Samsung revealed they've got a bendy screen prototype in the works last week too.

    Strange as it may sound, i'd rather activate menu controls by tapping a button or the screen.

    Not that I have ever played with anything remotely like that, but it sounds weird to me to bend something like that to control it.

    How do you do it with one hand ?

    I'll post to let you know what i think about it if i ever have a bendy Nokia device like that before i'm a pile of dust LOL.

    It is all very clever, there's no doubt about that. :)

    It won't replace the touch screen...more likely just complementing it.

    Seems like it may take some getting used to. Scrolling through the pictures is great, but when you try to stop on one will you or will you overshoot. Then trying to go back one will you overshoot again?

    Only showed in landscape, I see problems trying to bend a phone when in portrait.

    Doesn't matter if it's useful or not...it's a selling point just like Siri. :)
