Sony on a Roll

So you fancy rolling out a screen so thin it can be wrapped around a pencil?

Sony has announced a rollable full colour 4.1" OLED display that can be wrapped around a cylinder. The screen is so flexible and robust it can be repeatedly rolled up and has a resolution of 432x240 pixels.

The new OLED screens are coming but the question now is whether they can be touch sensetive or have to be fixed to a keyboard. Sony has the technology but has yet to show its application within the mobile device market. Imagine a small mobile that rolls out to be a big media player and still fits into the pocked. Its interesting that as technology gets better and smaller and applications improve we still have this fixed size screen, desire to key in.
