about 5-6 years ago, i've dreamed of a flip phone with LCD screen for its internal display and an E-ink screen for its external display (since E-ink has low power consumption, so i guess it's possible to save battery life).
it's glad to know that someone has the same idea and able to apply it to real product.
Now that is something new and sweet. Eink is a bliss for your eyes because it is not backlit - so perfect for reading. Lets hope this is not just a concept.
e-ink sure is battery efficient as it consumes battery of only for screen updates. But on a phone, the no of screen updates will be a lot . Consider with 1 update a second, I don't think is going make it that battery efficient
brilliant idea. most smartphones have limited battery life and this well be a cracking solution
AnonD-77784, 12 Dec 2012now this is an interesting and innovative phone! hopefully the e-ink can be used to read ebook... moreIt is an Android phone. Anything is possible. Trust XDA- developer to create something like that if the Stock OS doesn't provide such a feature.
With all those chinese crappy phones coming and going it was about time for the russians to do something about it and step in. Noce to see some innovation at last!
Let's hope they don't get sued. :)
ajit_shruti, 12 Dec 2012nice phone... but no card slot :(Why need card slot? Its already come out with 32/64gb internal memory
now this is an interesting and innovative phone! hopefully the e-ink can be used to read ebooks as well, and not just for notifications
ithink every android is need to use e-ink display and horeeee it will be lagggggggyyyy free
And the most interesting is that how the inside of the smartphone will be reachable, since the displays would be unable to remove, and creating a hot-swap battery would not be appropriate.
Still innovation... but lets wait for february :)
AnonD-80771, 12 Dec 2012well, that is innovative! but, why do we need two displays??didn't you read the article? (sigh...)
AnonD-80771, 12 Dec 2012well, that is innovative! but, why do we need two displays??Because Ink Screen acts more efficient in out-door environments , and use less power , rather than maxing your normal screen brightness , only flip your phone when ever you want to do a text, or phone call , or even maybe composing an email
This is a wonderfull idea! Now I just want a Tablet with the same features!
I love my Kindle Touch to read books but when I just want to surf I have to bring my tablet as well...
This would mean a 2 in 1 product that would fit my needs perfectly. Hope both Apple and the Droid companys pic up on this idea!
This is innovative, not dented body and 4" display. I mentioned no name
