PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This is so cool, and defeninitely the future of mobile phone displays. Samsung demonstrated a prototype phone with a flexible display. Flexible displays will be more resilient than the stuff we use today, and if we ever get around to developing flexible PCBs and batteries, we'll be golden. I long for sturdy, shatterproof devices.

Of course flexible materials are more sturdy than non. It's much harder to break a flexible material then a rigid one.


I don't know about that. A diamond is much more sturdy than a rubber band. My femur is much more sturdy than my acl. There are counter examples, of course, but I'm just pointing out that its not any where close to an absolute truth. Its just too difficult to say without knowing the specifics when trying to compare materials.
