Mitsubishi Electric unveiled a prototype cell phone with an LCD display that can be viewed from both sides. In this article, the IDG News Service writes that this could possibly affect the current trend in clamshell-type cell phones having two separate displays. Cell phones would also be thinner and cheaper.
But don't expect to get such a phone next week. Mitsubishi is still searching for customers to use this technology. This overview contains more details on how this reversible LCD works. It also includes photos from a prototype phone seen from both sides.
