This is crazy...
Technology is certainly advancing hugely when it comes to these phones. Though only prototypes, they're clearly experimenting and innovating in the field.

Brian Berkeley, head of Samsung Electronics Co.'s display lab in San Jose, California, demonstrated a prototype phone that consisted of a matchbox-sized hard enclosure, with a paper-thin, flexible color screen attached to one end.
The screen doesn't appear flexible enough to fold in half like a piece of paper, but it could bend into a tube, onlookers said.
The company also showed a video of a future concept, with a phone-sized device that opens up like a book, revealing a tablet-sized screen inside.
The screen uses organic light-emitting diodes, or OLEDs.

For the bendable phone, Samsung laid the chemicals over thin plastic instead of glass.
