-Hi, this is Josh Lowensohn from CNET.com here at Samsung's post keynote demo of Youm, that is the flexible swing technology that's gonna be in tablets, smartphones, and all sorts of new devices that Samsung hopes the companies are gonna make. Let me show you what's cool about this. The splinter actually wrap around. So, on these 2 reference designs for basically concepts you get the display that wraps around the side, but here it's on the bottom and over here it's actually on the side of device.

Samsung examples that you can have it on the table and flat and still see that kind of stuff. They kind of have visions and products that wrap around like binders or bi-fold wallets.
