Microsoft files patent for dual display phone


Microsoft has filed a patent for a dual display phone.  While there are many other dual display phones already, what sets Microsoft’s application apart is that it would use as much of the back surface of the phone as possible, including even curling over the sides, and would ideally use a low-powered display, like e-ink, which would allow the device to display information which does not change very frequently, like the date and time, or Microsoft suggests possible device logos or tattoos.

They even suggest a novel application – when taking a photo of a person, the backside display of the camera could be set to provide a visual countdown so that the person knows when to freeze that smile: 3-2-1 will appear on the back display and then snap.
