Polymer Vision, a Dutch company, which has earned the title of “The Rollable Display Company”, has managed to design and put in production the world’s first cell phone
with a folding 5” display. The name of the new devise is Readius
and it gives the public a hint about its character. The phone combines the “reading friendly” strengths of e-readers with the “high mobility” features of cell phones. Its battery is optimized for 30 reading hours with one charge and the tri-band 3G HSDPA support allows global roaming. At 4.05 oz (115g), the Readius is user friendly (8 buttons only) and has a microSD slot for all your music (mp3), e-books and podcasts. The phone is not yet on the market, but Polymer Vision is in a process of talking to carriers and retailers. We will keep you updated for any news and additional info on the Readius.
