This seems like a way more useful concept than a hinged dual screen. Very imaginative.

It is interesting to see where they are going to go with this... Cant wait for Mango.

what happened to the nano phone that you could fold around your hand?

Whether this is a concept done by a Nokia engineer developing solutions for WP7 remains a mystery to me.
Not a Nokia fanboy but it is possible especially knowing that Nokia engineers are hard at work internally developing and overhauling Windows Phone OS.

I hope Nokia is not overahauling the Windows Phone OS, I like it too much to change it dramatically even if they have to differentiate themselves...
Love the concept MS is asking to patent here!

I can immediately see a functional use for this dual screen concept: GPS Navigation! I can't stand leaving the GPS app to get to email, or text, or phone call, then missing your next exit.
