Mitsubishi Double Sided LCD
Mitsubishi has developed an LCD that is capable of displaying images on both sides of a single liquid crystal panel. They will be used for mobile flip phones that use two displays, the main display and one that's viewable without opening the flip for displaying phone numbers or the time. The benefit to the dual-sided LCD is that the phone can be made 30% smaller while reducing production costs.
