You know what? Screw you and your smartphone. You think you’re all worldly with your Web browsing and email, but you’re limited to that 3″ screen, tops. The new hotness comes from Polymer Vision and its new E-Ink cellbook. Using the flexible nature of electronic ink, the book opens from a size similar to a 5-year old cellphone to a UMPC-sized display, meaning you get real web browsing over the cellular network.
It’s got its own OS, and is a proof-of-concept demo, but with a decent commercial smarphone OS, this thing would be the bee’s knees. No word on if it supports voice calls, but we’d assume it’d have to somehow.
