    While Samsung’s age-old flexible Youm smartphone display concept yielded several quirky consumer products in the Galaxy Round, Note Edge, then increasingly popular S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, and S7 Edge, behind-the-scenes work continued on bringing even more curves and elasticity to tomorrow’s high-end mobile devices. For a number of years now, we’ve been hearing of plans to turn the wild, futuristic idea of a fully bendable phone into reality soon, but every so often delays enter the equation as Samsung can’t manage to overcome mass-manufacturing, build quality and other obstacles ...

    "You have your PRO 5, I have my PRO 6." So starts the tale of a Meizu forums user who apparently struck gold while out to dinner. Apparently after striking up a conversation with a young man, that man decided to sell something that would seem to be a Meizu PRO 6 prototype for about $15.

The nexus of the rumors centers around a Weibo look that detailed the back of one of those phones. This iPhone-esque prototype — the device even says it's a ...

    Apple has never been famous for building crazy products, but it has been quite notorious for building prototypes of anything it thinks of. Apple is also famous for cannibalizing its own legacy products with new ones in order to retain relevance in converging markets, as we saw with the iPod and iPhone. The question is if Apple is actually considering doing the same between the iPhone and iPad, as iPad sales haven't really wowed anyone?

    Last week at the Windows Phone 8 Summit, Joe Belfiore demonstrated some features on a Nokia Windows Phone 8 prototype, but he wouldn't let anyone get close to the phone.  Thanks to a decent zoom lens, some vibration reduction, and creative cropping we put together a few close ups of the test phone.  Sure, they're wrought with grainy noise and not particularly sharp, but at least you can get an idea of what his Windows Phone 8 looks like.  Don't get too excited about this Windows Phone 8 though!  It's just a prototype built for testing the software and hardware components, so don't ...
