Yota Devices, a Russian corporation once tied to state-run defense, plans to start selling a dual-screen smartphone powered by Google’s Android software, according to the Wall Street Journal. The phone will have a traditional LCD screen on one side and an electronic-paper display (a technology seen on e-book readers) on the other. “The design will allow users to continuously view all kinds of streaming data in real time—from Twitter feeds to stock market tickers—without having to constantly wake their phones up from sleep mode or quickly drain their batteries.”
