Kyocera Unveils Kinetic Flexible OLED Cell Phone

Note that this is a design concept. It is not a product. But, I liked the photo and idea so much, I just had to mention it here 🙂

The concept has the phone unfolding its semi-rigid polymer skin to reveal a large screen (like an iPod touch) for tasks that need the display space and a smaller screen view with the keyboard folded up for simpler tasks like dialing the phone. Here’s the best part of this concept though: Manipulating and using the phone generates power from the kinetic energy involved.
