I actually agree, a curved phone? Not really a useful tool, imagine how annoying it may be on the table. How would a curved phone work in your back pocket?

Now on the other hand the technology is truly amazing and eventually will create a curved flexible phone. :) Keep on pushing!

seriously, what's the point having bendable screen on mobile phone?

it's something briliant when on big huge TV or Monitor, it could be something cinema-like monitor.

but on mobile phone? really?

Its the small amount of flex the screen will inevitably have, that will stop it from breaking when dropped. Thats the big goal here I think.

Think of it more as a slim, light, rubbery mini tablet, that doesnt matter if it's dropped. With no glass needed.

But why call it the Z Series? Sony's already using that letter, this would confuse a lot of people.
