NEC's Medias W: a folding smartphone with two screens
NEC launched the Medias W N-05E for Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo.
Its specs are fairly standard: Android 4.1, a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU, an 8-megapixel camera, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage memory that's expandable via microSD cards.
What makes the phone stand out is its two 4.3-inch LCD screens, both with a 540x960 pixel resolution. The device can be folded in such a way that it shows only one screen, but when users need extra space, they can open both and enjoy all that added visual real estate.
What's more, users can stretch one app over both screens, or run different apps on each screen.
The Medias W will be available in Japan this April. What do you think of a two-screen smartphone? Would you use it? Share your thoughts in the comments, below.
