10 Cutting-Edge Mobile Devices Breaking New Ground

Email this CRN article


Yota Devices is expected to roll out the YotaPhone later this year, an Android device with two screens, one for each side of the smartphone. The first side is a traditional glossy touch screen, while the reverse is a matte electronic ink screen. The ink screen allows users to reference updated social media or email notifications, weather updates or a screen shot without "waking up" the rest of the phone and wearing out the battery. Different swipe motions across the bottom bar of the traditional side control the functions of the phone without the use of navigation buttons. Will the electronic ink screen succeed on the mobile market? Who knows, but the Yota sure is breaking new ground.

Price: TBD
