Android Man, 27 Oct 2011Samsung is the first to have flexible screens, they are the leaders in the display technology!... moreTop 4 Brands Leader in Display Technology 1st Sony, 2nd Samsung, 3rd LG and 4th Phillips
It is true. Sony invented the first flexible oled display . Samsung took the ideeeas of oled displays and upgraded it into the amoleds we have today. Samsung was the only manufacturer who could afford to invest in the technology at the time .Thats why today , samsung has the most advanced amoled manufacturing plant and is the only one that can mass produce amoleds.
But still good concept nokia. Would be good to whack apple fans in the head with that phone =))
Lol, did Samsungs flexible display have yellow tint that spreads when you bend it?
Who cares who was first? The first one to utilise this in a clever way is the winner

FYI: Sony is the 1st not Samsung or LG
Eastman Kodak invented OLED technology in the early 1980s and has been improving upon it ever since, along with other companies. Sanyo Electric and Eastman Kodak united for a joint venture, SK display, to make the first OLEDs available commercially in a digital still camera introduced in 2003, the EasyShare LS633

And the same apps were available cross platform between iOS and Android. Siri is not available on Android. Anyone can talk to their phone... but Sir interacts with you in a way never seen before... the others do not.
yeah, have to agree - Samsung already had this 6 months ago, and have been talking about actually producing a handset with this. which was way before Sony.
i liked the scrolling part ;)
Samsung is the first to have flexible screens, they are the leaders in the display technology! Did anyone see the documentary on Samsung Digital City?

@ Author: "The downside is that you have to use both hands and it also does not look terribly convenient, with far too much effort being required to flex the device compared to simply tapping on the screen."
Man, this is not even an alpha version of the flexible interface! Chill out! See the positive side! When your phone falls down accidentally, it will bounce instead of crashing! :)
Nokia, apply for the patent immediately before Apple does.
Looks inconvenient as hell... Why would anyone in their right minds use too much energy to twist and bend a screen when you can easily tap (touch) or talk (Siri) with your phone?
BTW loved the guys comment below about whacking Apple with this LOLZ... :P
sony was frst to built a prototype of flexible oled displays...
Good stuff Nokia! Just a few more innovation and apple will be jelly..
Besides the fact that flexing the screen will control the interface ,it's nothing new ...i saw the first AMOLED flexible display years ago ,and it was done by : SAMSUNG ...imagine that. You can google it if you want
use the technology for our hp with the existing pinch and zoom? but the flexibility will decrease the chances of breaking screen hopefully ;)
