At this point the only feature missing from the ever-changing category of smartphones like the iPhone is durability. Now this new Paper Phone prototype may mean the beginnings of a new phone paradigm for the future of mobile devices.
Developed by research teams from Canada's Queen's University and Arizona State University, the device is a 9.5-centimetre piece of flexible film that uses e-ink for its display. When you want to make a call you simply bend the device's surface and squeeze the appropriate symbols. The research group hopes to see this kind of phone hit the commercial market sometime in the next decade.
