We've heard countless times the stories about flexible eInk, yet the products have never materialized. Will this be different?
I've never seen the appeal of flexible displays for consumers...unless they were transparent and like in your car windshield or something.

For now, dont think of they as folding up a 6" device into a cigar shape.

Think of it as insurance for the screens, one of the biggest problems ive read on these forums is screen breakage.

With a flexible display the screen will be way more rugged and allow for more sizes with out the added possibilty of breakage.

This. If it bends, it won't break (as easy). Appealing enough to me.
