Philips unit to launch rollable-screen handheld

A division of Philips will show off what it claims is the world's first "rollable display" cellular device at the mobile technology exhibition 3GSM next week.

Polymer Vision's Readius device, which has a roll-out grayscale screen, is being touted as a combination 3G-enabled PDA and e-book reader. Telecom Italia Mobile is the first operator scheduled to release it, with a commercial launch set for the end of the year. Polymer Vision has not confirmed any discussions with U.K. operators.


The device's makers say that the touch screen, which extends as far as 5 inches from the body of the device, "offers a readability similar to printed paper" with high contrast and high reflectivity. Future versions could include color and the ability to show moving images, the company said

There is already a thread about this:

I have a friend that is attending the 3GSM conference, and I have asked him to check out the device. Unfortunately the tickets for the event are over 500 euros so I will not be attending

Pitchfork, does your friend have a digi camera? It would be ubercool if he or she could make some photos for us.
