First Phone with Transparent Screen Launched in Indonesia

First Phone  with Transparent Screen Launched in Indonesia e-Reading Hardware Do you recall that smartphone with a dual sided transparent screen I showed you a couple months back? I just found an Indonesian telecom whose new phone uses that screen.

The prototype I posted back in May was being demoed by NTT Docomo, the Japanese telecom, and it used a 2.4" transparent OLED screen that was developed by Neoview Kolon. This same screen is now going to be used in the Nexian Glaze M-9090, a sub-$100 Java-based phone.

I cannot find many details yet on this phone, but it appears to have a 1.3MP camera as well as support for dual SIM cards. Nexian is promising that it will ship with the Nexian Messenger app and the S Apps Planet services. And yes, it does cost less than $100; the retail is only 899,000 Rupiahs ($95).

Okay, that's cool, but the video of the prototype was more interesting to look at.

I cannot help but wonder when we might see this screen tech in a larger size. Sure, there are certain limitation on the design (no electronics behind the screen), but as you make larger and larger screens that becomes less important. A 7" ereader, for example, could have all the guts in the spine/handle without seriously impacting the functionality.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
