Samsung patents slider phone with two touchscreens

29 Aug

Samsung has recently patented a sliding cellphone with not one but two touchscreens. According to the patent application,  the lower part of the slider mechanism that usually houses the keypad is replaced with another touchscreen that compliments the main touchscreen on the top. Such a phone will have a smart UI that will show menu items continued from the main touchscreen when the phone is slid open.

Just imagine if the two touchscreens are placed in a way that when the slider is open the two screens fit to become one! Now only if Samsung could add mult-touch and a killer UI to the hardware, you’d be staring at a phone that could at least dream of competing with stuff that we see from Cupertino.
