AND LIKE ALWAYS LG WILL BE THE FIRST TO HAVE IT AVAILABLE TO PUBLIC. So you are the drunk that did not read my post.

My Post say LG has been the first to have dual core, quad core and other services available to the PUBLIC. In other words US.

It doesn't matter who showcaise it first. What matters is who make it available to the public consumers.

Prototypes & demo are useless...Its the one who actually make it to the public.

Idiots will buy this phone thinking they can twist and bend it around
They will be in for a surprise when they find out that flexible screens are just for durability

Come on people. Both Samsung and LG have been working with it for years, without even knowing the other is making it too. They are not copying each other. You can´t just copy somrthing like that in a few monts. Also if I remember correctly Nokia has been working on a phone similar for even longer. If I remember correctly itis the kind of a phone that you can actually roll like a carpet and it works with solarpower. But even the best solarpanels in the world are not good enough at the moment. So many manufacturers have been doing a similar consept for years and noone is copying from anybody.

Flexible screen is completely useless without flexible battery, flexible RAM,flexible motherboard, flexible sim card, flexible antennas.

there will be no more cracking screen problems of iph 5 or sgs 4. nice work lg. I don't think it will be fully flexible like the picture shown here but the glass will withstand shock cracks much better

Guys, SAMSUNG announced the first flexible screen!
Has anyone of you seen CES 2013 where Samsung announced it? I'm sure none of you have..
It's called YOUM and if you don't trust me then Google it or put it to YouTube

Samsung
