I doubt the entire phone is bendable. Probably only some "bending zones" do bend.
Where the cpu, memory is wont bend.
I also doubt it can bend over 90 degrees.

They would have non bend zones that are generally flat, and interconnect all components with the flexible ribbon wiring. It's been demonstrated possible before by Samsung.

Nokia did have a demo of bending display and navigation trough menus and zooming on pics and stuff you should check it ;)

more bendable screens = less broken screens

its real we make material that they use to make the display.They sputter the metal we.make onto a flexible laminate and use surface mount to make the display totally flexible
And they are making 60" screens that fold up into your pocket for TVs . Those should be showing up by the end of the year . Samsung has kept us busy for the last year and his year too

Usually, it's soft and bendable. All you need to make a call is just to stroke it a little to get it hard...
Sorry guys, I couldn't resist :)

If I can stick it in my back pocket and sit on it, great. Otherwise, why?

The picture has the device open to a phone dialer. Looks cool. I'd like to see apple Sue over a design like that.

IF u look its in the exact same position in every single picture its probly just a curved screen at least for this model here, I do know for a fact there is bendable screens even Sony had workable demos years ago.... but I doubt the one here bends up it looks solid just made into that position to show off the flexability. Who knows it may bend but UN till they show more pictures in different position or a video then womp wimp who cares... this is one thing with about 2 uses 1 is to prevent screens from breaking and 2 would be to have a small device with a giant fold out screen, other wise not much use maby to make things with weird shaped screens around it like a globe or cylinder or something but really nothing of super use u know...
