Microsoft planning double sided smartphone display?
Microsoft could be planning a double-sided smartphone display system according to a recent patent trademark filing by the Redmond based company. According to PatentBolt, Microsoft filed the patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on Friday with the invention allowing certain types of information to be moved from the main display to the rear display, which will be powered by low-powered processor.
The secondary display could also be used in customising the device, with the option to choose your own colour for the display to turn being touted as one of the possibilities for this invention.
It’s unclear when (or if) the display will come to market, but it will likely be running Microsoft’s Windows Phone or Windows 8 operating systems and possibly made by Nokia, who recently released the Nokia Lumia 900 as part of their re-entry into the US.
