Russia now is quasi dictatorship of Putin and they need the 2nd screen to use as a phone, the 1st screen will show portrait of Putin and his "achievements" obviously.
But seriously Russia is plagued with corruption and Rostekhnologii must show they're doing something to spend that $25 M I guess. You can go to China and buy a prototype for some dozens bucks.

"...you will be able to set certain
notifications which can still display the last image even after the phone runs out of power."
I like this idea.
Looking forward to the Russian build phone-craft!

Similar to the Samsung Upstage on Sprint. Loved that lil dual screened phone. 1st phone in 05 I think to have a lithium polimer battery. And I liked the battery wallet concept. Allowed the phone to stay charged for days.

Russia should team up with China to build their own mobile operating system to be independent from Google and especially from the US.
