Too bad it will be mostly useless in the US

Phone with fold-away screen launched | Technology | Reuters:

The 5-inch (13-cm) display of Polymer Vision’s “Readius” is the world’s first that folds out when the user wants to read news, blogs or email and folds back together so that the device can fit into a pocket. Polymer Vision, spun out of Philips (PHG.AS: Quote, Profile, Research), whetted the appetite of gadget fans more than two years ago when it showed off a prototype. Now the gadget is in production and will go head-to-head with Apple’s (AAPL.O: Quote, Profile, Research) iPhone and Amazon’s (AMZN.O: Quote, Profile, Research) ebook reader Kindle when it hits stores mid-2008.

Cuz it relies on high-speed cell networks, which really just aren’t there yet, and especially not around here. But I do love it.
