It's a good idea but the specs aren't compelling enough to justify the high price. Also it'd be quite awkward to hold a phone with screens on both sides. Probably the idea would be more fitting on a flip phone like the Galaxy Golden, with the eInk screen on the front.

This sounds awesome. E-ink is great. There are a lot of cool things you could do with such a device. Being able to read books and other material on the e-ink screen is just one of many possibilities. When not in use, the e-ink screen could be something like an active windows display like on windows 8. Owning an amazon paperwhite has convinced me of the power of e-ink. This phone seems like the best of both worlds.

Good to see new technology, under 10 mm is not that thick Michael.

I guess it's all bumper cases for this one. This is great in concept, wonder what it will lead to if anything.

I've been waiting for some news on this phone since January when it was first showed. I think it would be a heck of a secondary phone.

This is a really good concept! I can see this taking off if they can perfect it.
Think of the kind of battery life improvements that you could get from having an e-ink display and how much easier it would be to see your phone in direct sunlight. I know they are working on colored e-ink displays. Who knows what the phone market will be like in 2-3 years, but as things are right now, this could be a really good idea.

5 inches on both sides would make it better and desirable
+ with dedicated case like on Samsung Galaxy S3-S4 with dual sides opening in a blick for a more practical and functional use,
+ price would need to go down 25%, than we can talk sales and we might see it chasing some big boys on the block in few years by improving on next few models.
But for now overpriced original, but still too ambitious fail in the making!
