I like the flexible screen. I don't like how it was implemented here.

Nokia is is need of doing something drastic to survive.

Looking at the concept, not bad but all i thought about was how handy having a car dash/center console that flowed into each other and featuring this tech to mould to the curves instead of stupid mulit function control joysticks cars now have added with moveable touch areas for controls like heated windscreen, radio, fully customizable.

Nokia has had all kinds of flexible prototypes for many years. One of them is some years old and it is so thin that you can actually schroll it into tiny schroll. The model also has solar panels in it. Nokia is trying to develop the prototypes solarpanels so good that the phone will never run out.

Android Man, 27 Oct 2011Samsung is the first to have flexible screens, they are the lead... moreOh really? another samsung fan,. Read first because SONY invented the first flexible, rollable screen ever... and besides, the thinnest (as thin as film). Search for it.

Looks great! Hopefully they will use a better OS than window...

Who cares about who was first with this?

The real winners are the ones who can implement it with good software, and bring it to the masses. Just like Apple did with touchscreen phones, then the rest will follow suit.

I'd like to believe that this will be incredibly hard to break, which is quite remarkable. But navigating by twisting and bending is just silly

Nokia, please file a patent on the display right now or Apple will "invent(steal)" it in 5 years.

I'm not sure how a flexible phone will help most consumers, but having a virtually perfect display is just incredible.

Also, there is a very wide difference between merely flexible display (used for curved surfaces or like made into a glove or a rolled up screen) and a flexible display that senses the flexing and gives the feedback to the system.

Haha ... the iOS vs Android war, even in a Nokia post? XD

Anyway, the flexible OLED looks pretty nice. I wonder how the mass-production would look (and feel) in the future. Thanks for showing us the awesome prototype, Nokia. ^^
