As cool as a transparent display sound... I don't think it'll be very useful outdoor....

to those of you that think this transparent thingy is new, it isnt! Remember the LG Crystal with it's transparent touch keypad? sure it wasnt the screen, but it is still innovation! plus, its borders (of e keypad) was also transparent! if i remember correctly, it was the first phone in the world with a transparent touch keypad.

FYI the phone came out a few years ago!

True! that was in mid 2009 but the first phone (as far as I know) to come out with the see through screen was Xperia Pureness (end 2009)

In my opinion, technology doesnt move forward on thinking "practical" - anybody can do that. You have to push new possibilities. I think its a decent concept. The big question is how do you hide all the guts to pull a transparent phone. If this idea could be a reality I'd tote it in a heartbeat.

Hmmm! fascinating but in my opinion its practicality is quite doubtful. In fact Sony pioneered this technology in phones by introducing Xperia Pureness back in 2009 and practicality is probably one of the main reasons why Sony hasn't brought its next gen model since then. Lets see....

1. Amoled screens do not require a backlight, the pixels illuminate themselves, HOWEVER, the color black would be difficult to accompish because to achieve the color black the screen just shuts the pixels off in that area and let the black background do it's work, NOT POSSIBLE WITH A TRANSPARENT SCREEN
2. HOWEVER, if you put an LCD screen directly under the Amoled screen, it could serve as a black background and it would also serve as a privacy shield for the back, and when the phone is off it could keep the screen black and only have it be transparent when you want.
Just throwing that idea out there...

Come to think about it...it's like producing amplified sounds without speakers!!

LG probably have something like this done before apple does they already had a slider phone with a transparent keypad and could use gestures on the keypad to control things on the screen
