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.

Too many material properties getting mixed up... durability isn't really defined in the context of this conversation. Which is partially my fault, I realize, but take a look at some of the different measurements that could all be considered durability:

Its difficult to say that a good test on one of them will guarantee a good test on any other one, without going into specific materials.
