Foldable OLED display mobile phone concept

Today at the FPD International Show in Yokohama, Samsung revealed a very interesting concept mobile phone. The standard looking phone, opens like a book to reveal a large colour display, using it’s AMOLED (Active Matrix OLED). Unfortunately this is still a concept, so no details on price or release date for availability.

Could this be the future of eBooks? I think so… I cannot help but be reminded of the Readius by Polymer Vision, while that device uses a 5″ flexible greyscale e-Ink display, and Samsung’s approach is more akin to using a book, they both tackle the same problem of carrying around a large display in your pocket. Sony are also developing a flexible OLED display.
