Radius cell phone with large foldout screen


As cell phones become more sophisticated, we're more often free to leave behind our laptops when we're on the go, while still being able to do many of the most common tasks we do on a computer, like email, minor editing of documents and presentations, and Web browsing. One problem, though, is that as screens get smaller, our eyes don't change to accommodate our ever-growing need to miniaturize. There are physical limitations.

A Dutch company, Polymer VIsion, will be releasing the Readius, a 3G cell phone with a 5-inch, foldout screen, so you don't have to strain your eyes to read emails and documents. While the phone itself is no bigger than the average cell phone, the screen turns it into an electronic reader (with a black and white screen, much like Amazon's Kindle).

No word yet on pricing or availability.
