Begs the obvious question. Why would you want to bend your smartphone? Unless bendable means much lighter. Then light is good. And also if bendable means sturdier, strong is good.
First you get to bend it, then you get to roll it.
But you don't want it to get so thin that it becomes a martial art weapon. Well, it perhaps is a martial art weapon at any thickness. So that is a moot point.
Samsung preps 5.5-inch flexible phone screen for CES demo
although its demo screens curve without rending, they don't yet roll up. ..... Competitors LG and Nokia have also recently demonstrated bendy prototypes for smartphones and tablets. Pliable electronics are clearly a future trend.Will the Samsung Galaxy S4 be 'unbreakable'?
the next batch of galactic goodies will pack a quad-core processor and 13-megapixel camera.... either the Galaxy S4 or Galaxy S5 will have bendable or even foldable displays by 2014. Just imagine, returning to the legacy of the flip phone with new folding or even "squishy" phones. I might even stand in line for a "koosh" phone.
