PaperPhone Is Thin, Like Paper Thin

Think your iPhone 4 is thin, think again, the new PaperPhone from the research team at E-Ink Corporation and two universities is literally paper thin and flexible.

Unlike a basic touchscreen users control the phone by writing on it, bending it or using the touchscreen.

The phone uses the same E-Ink technology used by the Amazon Kindle eReader series and can be used to read e-books, listen to music and of course make phone calls.

$7000 isn’t cheap but for a prototype it’s actually not a bad price point, hopefully a $199 price point can be met to compete with the iPhone series in the next few years and the screen could definitely use some Retina/OLED type love.
