    I honestly don't see the appeal of these. I'd like to continue thinking of the Motorola RAZR V3 as my first and last foldable phone!

    I just don’t watch the video - I’m not installing flash.

    The name alone makes me want to avoid this like plague.

    Exactly what I thought... over £1,000 for a phone!? Who are they kidding!
    Even Apple can GTFO with those prices...

    I don't see a use case for this. I assume it's hinged at the top and bottom, which is going to be a massive weak point.

    Re: Royole FlexPai to be the first of many foldable smartphones?

    Folds the wrong way - Screen should fold in on itself to protect it.
    Also doesn't fold flat, which is really annoying.

    If I could afford one, I'd probably just get a Cosmo Communicator instead!!
