World’s First Flexible Smartphone Invented in Canada

PaperPhone 150 A group at Queen’s University in Canada has created the first smartphone, the “PaperPhone”, that you can bend.

The phone’s display is based on E Ink, the same technology used in ereaders like the Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook.

The PaperPhone’s 3.75 thin-film E Ink display is slightly larger than the iPhone’s (which has a 3.5-inch screen). It’s said to be able to do everything a typical smartphone today can do, such as storing ebooks, keeping a list of contacts, playing music, and, oh yeah, making calls.
