LG Flexible Display

I am not 100% convinced that flexible displays will do us any good, I quite like my smartphone being straight and rigid, maybe this is just a stepping stone for raised components, like keyboards, or widgets/icons. Who knows what they can dream up after this comes to the market…

Reports suggest LG could include its first flexible screen inside the G Flex,  a new 6-inch smartphone set to be announced next month, but the company  points to new products with “enhanced performance and differentiated designs” coming next year. Something tells us LG may move quickly to announce its first such product, with Samsung strongly tipped to unveil its own exotically-shaped smartphone next month. It’s probable that both devices will be artistically bent to achieve their form, so we’ll probably have to wait a little longer for something that actually bends into our jean pockets. source engadget.com

What are your thoughts? Do you like the idea of a flexible plastic screen?
