The challenge for cellphone designers has been to continually reduce the size of the device, yet make the display as large as possible.
This is the so-called “Scroll” device created by 13 Tech Design. It’s packing a touchscreen-based cellphone, a 10 megapixel camera and 1080p camcorder, various media-playing features, built-in WiFi and Bluetooth, and a full-fledged computer that runs on Vista or XP.
We don’t know what the future holds for the “Scroll”, but it has caught the attention of several serious design professionals. True, that doesn’t mean the marketplace will buy them, but it could pave the way for a new generation of expandable units.
