    I was expecting to see some kind of flexible screen arrangement, which would be pretty exciting IMO. This is probably little more than a daft bit of tech that will last for 1 generation and be forgotten about.

    Definitely a gimmick, as others have implied. If I had to upgrade my phone to a flagship model right now, I'd go for the soon-to-be-available AGM X2 rugged smartphone, which comes with a 6000mAh battery.
