Samsung shows off cell phone with folding screen

With venerable print journals like PC Magazine folding into online-only operations, many old school media titans are looking for an escape hatch and Samsung may have the key. At Japan's recent FPD International 2008 tech conference, the Korean cell phone giant showed off a phone with a foldable display--a big deal given that most of the time this kind of tech is only viewed from some research laboratory.

With one display shown on a traditional cell phone panel, the phone slowly unfolds like a book to reveal a second, much wider screen. Although Samsung has yet to offer a release date for the commercial version of this product, you can check out the most likely future of your printed media via video here.
