Samsung slider patents

Samsung has patented technology pointing the way to a pair of future smartphones. According to diagrams submitted to the US Patent and Trademark Office (click below), users may be able not only to slide out speakers or a QWERTY keyboard, but crane displays upwards for a more PC-like experience, even resting phones neatly on a desk. The concept is similar what was demonstrated in the YP-K5 music player, but with sharper angles that may make devices more convenient. Unfortunately for the public, as with most patents, there is no indication of if and/or when Samsung will bring its ideas to fruition. [via Unwired View]
