LG & Samsung release totally pointless curved phones

We are not at all sure what the deal is here. Quite why the idea of a phone with a curved screen is desirable or needed is beyond us. Samsung showed off a pretty cool flexi screen at CES 2013 to be known as Youm, watch the video here. It is pretty cool, and surely in a few years we’ll all be wondering around with a plastic, flexible screen.

However, wtf are they think creating a phone that curves on the width of the phone? The Galaxy Round is ridiculous.

Not to be out done, LG followed that release with their very own “flexible” phone, called G flex. At least the have the curve on the phone on the length, much like the Samsung Nexus S / Galaxy Nexus.

What do you think? Totally bloody pointless or the future of mobile?
