    Bit of a strange promotional video, but fair play for bringing something relatively new to the market. Hopefully we'll see the prices come down with later revisions though, £1150 is a bit steep IMO.

    Not really a fan of using the curved edge generally for display, as at least for people like me with less than great eyesight, I usually find them really difficult to read.
    But as a launcher/app switcher and therefore simpler display with icons it could work.
    However I am not sure really what media, or apps are really going to benefit from the larger size screen as least fully utilising the aspect ratio.
    Android is notorious for few apps really supporting tablet-like sizes.

    It's really cool, and a sign of the direction innovation is going. However it just looks so fragile, my phone is a utility device at the end of the day, and if I had something like that i'd be constantly worried about damaging it. Maybe once the tech gets cheaper it will be less of a worry. Always excited to see new stuff though!

    Products like this are at least driving iteration of the technology. I have little intention currently, mostly due to budget of being an early adopter of pretty much any technology but those people who for whatever reason do spend on these are helping to make them better.
    There is an appeal personally to something with a larger screen, which is otherwise unwieldy to have portable. Would let me occasionally view media, and have apps at a much larger size suiting my eyesight better.
    So I hope to see this become mainstream in time, and affordable to more of us.

    For some people this might be a gimmick, but for me I see real potential.

    The opening in my underwear are hinged too and actuated, so when the IOT chip detect i need to pee ( as i a too stupid to figure that out myself ) i get a notification on my phone and i can then "unzip" the actuated underwear with voice command once google maps have guided me to a toilet nearby.

    What a brave new world it is.
