devices with OLED technology

OLED technology is essentially a technology that enables you to bend the screen, wrap it around the device itself (instead of just one one side), or even fold it up and put it in your pocket.

We’ve covered foldable screens before as well as other prototypes that use OLED technolog.  However, now that we have seen Samsung, LG, Apple, and Nokia commit to releasing devices and displays that use this technology, I have to wonder, how soon will we start seeing physical newspapers, magazines, and books that are also digital yet still have that tactile physical presence we value?  This will certainly bring a new dimension to the notion of napkin sketching.
