Mobile phones with two screens have been around since the days when being able to see who was calling was still a technological treat.

But current smartphones appear to have moved away from the idea.

Richard Taylor talks to Yota Devices CEO Vladislav Martynov about why he hopes e-ink on the second screen is the answer consumers have been looking for.

 

From http://news.bbc.co.u...ine/9782115.stm

 

I've never had a two screen smartphone but will they come back?

That seems pretty good. It might not matter if we get better and more efficient batteries, but for now it seems pretty useful. You believe that I still don't have a cell phone though? I might have to break down and get one if they keep getting cool stuff.

Well, I didn't have one until about a year and a half ago, so don't feel bad, and even then, it's just a regular cell phone on a pay-as-you go plan and not a smartphone with a contract. It's minimalistic, but works great for what it needs to do. That said though, this seems like a great use for an e-ink screen while maximizing battery use. I got a Tablet for Christmas this year (Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus) and I much prefer reading on my Kindle than with the tablet, mainly due to the contrast. For colour things such as PDFs though, it's great.
