The gadget blogs have already started clamoring over the very 'special' patent that Microsoft had filed a few days ago. Well, they have their reasons to do so, as the patent of a dual screen device with detachable display could seriously lead the way of revolutionary change in the commercial scheme of the thriving smartphone market.
The detachable element of the product has the potential to stand out as its very essence of novelty. Basically the dual screens would form a singular interactive system, with different functionalities. The dynamic changes made on one screen will be regulated by the specific control mechanisms found in the other screen. In other words, one of the screens will sort of act as a remote control for the other larger one.
The overall dimensions of the phone may be larger than those conventional ultra-thin smartphone models prevalent in the market now. But going back to the detachable nature, the secondary screen can still be utilized (as a receiver), while a session of interactive talking takes place through the primary screen. Moreover, the secondary screen can also be kept aside (or joined) when not in the functional mode.
So, the bottom-line is that this advanced conception can positively break new grounds with its practicality and convenience that it brings aboard. Furthermore, as the patent has already being filed, perhaps the state-of-art-technology could be transformed into a sophisticated device in the near future.
