    Then Aakash is definitely not for you, reading PDF files in resistive touch screen is a pain. I'm gonna settle for iPAD this time, the only tablet i can look forward to for education purpose.

    my office files are mostly xlsx, docx format
    since there aren't many computer literates in my office,

    and they definitely can't use Acrobat Professional,
    it needs a bit expert training.

    so it wont be a prob.

    Samsung Will Launch Flexible Phone Next Year

    [​IMG]

    Samsung will sell flexible phones from next year, the Samsung Galaxy Skin is the smartphone which will bend around a cylinder with a 1 inch diameter. The phone will have an AMOLED display that will be flexible and almost unbreakable.

    The key material of this new technology is ‘graphene’. Research by scientists from Columbia University has established that ‘graphene’ is the strongest material in the world, some 200 times stronger than structural steel according to the research. This new technology also allows the phone to be used as a mouse, a clock or a wrist-watch.

    The Galaxy Skin will have high-resolution 800×480 flexible AMOLED screen, eight megapixel camera and a 1.2GHz processor which will be powered by 1Gb of RAM. Samsung has not yet disclosed the device’s operating system, but there have been rumors about Jelly Bean Google’s next Android release after Ice Cream Sandwich which will run the phone.

    Nokia Unveiled Its Flexible Smartphone

    [​IMG]

    Nokia showed off its flexible OLED smartphone along with Nokia Lumia 800 and 710 during the Nokia World event. This smartphone is called Nokia Kinetic Device. The feature of this smartphone is that it can bend and is very flexible and a UI that is wholly dependent on the way in which users interact with it, specifically by bending and twisting it to navigate its various functions.

    This flexibility can be used in order to maintain and control the various levels of interface. Other path breaking features of this device is that it is water proof in nature which means that this device is expected to work fine even in water surface as well. We can zoom in or zoom out any images or pages in that device by bending the phone.

    Since its still in its prototype phase the phone dint have an camera, GPS or a touchscreen, the navigation was through bending of the phone through files and photos.
