    I saw a video for this concept tablet on Vimeo. How long before this sort of technology is available! It makes the Ipad look pathetic.

    New tech always makes old tech look pathetic! I will post again if Samsung get this on the street and Apple don't.

    In my dreams flexible displays are pathetic as we get everything we need projected into our field of vision directly. :)

    Back in real life however flexible screens have been demonstrated and promised since 2000. I worked in the newspaper industry then and people were saying paper would be dead in a couple of years because of this.
    The couple of years has turned into 12 and still waiting...

    Plus what use is a flexible display without flexible batteries? Those are what really adds most of the bulk and rigidity to tablets.

    Just seen a video of them. They don't look very practical. Not something I would want to keep in a pocket.
