In the eternal quest to have as large a screen and keyboard while having as small a device as possible, Samsung has just added a new crusader.

Their new patented rear keyboard system features 2 small and thin half-QWERTY keyboards hidden in the body of the system, from where they can fold out automatically when text entry is needed.

The main weakness I see with the design is the relative weakness of the wings, which will likely mean devices build like this will not be suitable for the next Omnia Pro 3.
