Re: Bendable
@ashu001- Well, scale obviously only works with products with mass appeal for a long time. I think it would work with a foldable phone, but it is possible most people wouldn't see the value. I don't know. The disadvantage to a foldable phone is that it is probably much easier to lose. Maybe that would be too big a problem to overcome.

Re: Bendable
David,

Do you feel the wholething about Scale will work here as well?

As more and more products are sold ,the price will come down automatically?

I certainly hope so.

However seeing the latest "Edge" phones from Samsung I am not really very hopeful.

Re: Bendable
@ashu001- I think the problem isn't making one, but learning how to do it at an affordable cost. That seems to be the harder part. Seems like getting the cost down is always the longer and harder part of consumer tech.

Re: Productivity?
Terry,

It will take sometime for us to see the kind of Mass Innovation Adoption which you are talking about here.

But I have a feeling a lot more folks will see value in these features in the coming decade or so.

Re: Bendable
David,

Don't you feel that with the advent of 3D Printing(and especially at Home Printing) ;this Innovation will come even sooner today?

Atleast that's how I view things today.

Productivity?
None of this in article or what you guys are discussing is what I think of when I think productivity. I thought that meant efficiently getting work done? I'm not even clear anymore in this new world what qualifies as work anymore?

I create business systems by writing, testing and deploying code. If any of you can tell me how any of this makes me more productive, please enlighten me. Even in my consumer mode of raising family and having as much fun as life can offer, I struggle to see how this improves things over what we have now.

For example, mobile phone map/navigation is a light year productivity improvement over pulling to side of road and unfolding the old paper map to plot your course. But does what MS talking about here elevate that with curved screens and holograms? I think we are talking very niche stuff here.

Re: Bendable
@ashu001- Several companies are working on it. It won't be long now. I'm guessing 5 years until we see one and 10 until we all have one. 15 ot 20 until they're full color and perfect though.

Re: Bendable
Smartphone manufacture should consider to have an eco-system established instead of relying on hardware/software selling. They should think about how to form a closed-loop ecosystem. The profit should be obtained by user stickness instead of selling hardware/OS in one-go.

Re: Bendable
@mejiac – Consumers didn't embrace Note Edge as they expected, mostly because of the high price range. Smartphone industry is very competitive and consumers expect the prices to be competitive too.

Re: "Beyond 200"
@mejiac – Today we see most forecasted technologies coming to us (sometimes much faster than we expected).

Soon we will see flexible devices.
