Is this the Android phone of tomorrow?

Is this the Android phone of tomorrow?
A "concept" Android handset made by a designer by the name of Kristian Ulrich Larsen is intriguing to say the least. With three fold out Super AMOLED displays made with Gorilla Glass, the phone can show three different web sites at the same time, or can be folded to allow two people to view their favorite site while both are sitting down at a table. There is even room for a physical QWERTY keyboard and a front facing camera.

We would imagine that even folded up, the device might turn out to be a bit too much to carry around. Still, there very well could be a market for a handset like this. Would a triple-screen device be useful to you?

This could be the most revolutionary design concept introduced since the introduction of the cell phone. This is the type of innovative thinking that has the potential to take a 3rd or 4th place cell phone manufacturer to the top.

As long as it could fold flat it would be sick. After watching the concept video I could see how the 3 screens would be very useful. Possibly less scrolling and the dual use would be fun for video games.

this idea is freezing awesome... i hope it becomes real.... as wide as a tablet as portable as a phone plus somewhat intuitive... i imagine a big company applying this to its line of phones

i think this idea aint that new, actually like some1 mentioned i think some nokia-prototypes a few years back had similar design! But, like the old irish gay writer said- i aint too young to know everythin... in other words, nothin special +nothin that cant be done even today...

hmm, the "old irish gay writer dude"? I can only assume you were referring to Oscar Wilde. I'm sure your cannabalistic paraphrasing of one of his more famous quotes would kill him all over again.

Looks awesome! I'm sure some rich folks somewhere have one made already. With all that AMOLED this thing would be like $1,500 to $2,000 ...

it's not 3 screens it's 2 screens and a third panel that houses battery and hardware

Ok I had the same smile on my face watching this video that I did the first time I held a Galaxy S in my hand and beheld the screen and light weight.

awsome but a little to creative i wudnt like to carry that big thing

29. Mike from NY unregistered

It's a cool idea, and the features are amazing espcially functionality. The biggest downfall is the size. I mean are you really going to carry that around? Well if you're a woman, sure you have a big bag or a purse and it's fine but most men, myself included, hate carying things and this phone is just too big. I mean if it rains i rather wear a hat or a hood than carry an umbrella... you get the point. But like most inteligent people say... to each their own. Mike

Just because it's unique, doesn't mean it's practical
