From sleek and hard to dull and soft. This could be the start of a new cellphone design trend. Designer, Roman Kriheli, uses a process called “electrowetting” on his 'paper' phone (it's not really paper; it just looks like it). This technology allows the ink in the plastic covering to move around when electric signals are applied. This creates a video-like display.

Implications - The phone literally looks like a piece of white cardboard with numbers drawn onto it. It is hard to believe that this phone is actually fully functional! People who are looking for a phone that is completely simple in all ways would definitely have a blast with the featured 'paper' phone.
