    LG applies for Dual-Screen patents


    Ever since the render of that Nvidia handset popped up a lot of discussion surrounded the pull out keyboard. I mentioned a while back what a great concept it would be to have a virtual slide out keyboard.

    The above images are of a concept from LG. What the slider could be used for is anybody's guess but it does appear that it could very well be a virtual keyboard. Pure speculation of course but for those that favor a keyboard it could prove to be a good concept.

    For the second patent please visit Phone Dog.

    What do you the readers think? Would a virtual keyboard be desirable or do you think it's just a waste and only adds unnecessary thickness?

    Definately an interesting concept. I'd have to take it out for a spin first. Seems to me like it would have a lot of other benefits though, like gaming.

    This doesn't represent the final product it's only a mock-up. They won't give away their designs.

    I still think a slide out keyboard is a good thing, as it offers more screen real estate. A virtual QWERTY slide out would be a good idea, one there's no issues with mechanical key breakage, and 2, the thing can be context sensitive.

    However one must also wonder if the second screen in LG's intented design is some sort of e-ink display. That would be cool in a way, as well.

    I don't play games on my phone and like an all-touch device. So, I'm wondering what would be any additional benefit of the second screen.

    Its funny u posted this...

    Me and this guy got into a debate about Android copying Apple. I brought up the LG Prada and the iPhone...

    Trying to dig up more info on the LG Prada....I saw LG had either this patent or one very similar back in 2006.

    Its funny that first Motorola/Nvidia concept phone looked like this...
