Nate the greatest writes "One of the stranger ereader/smartphone hybrid devices ever to grace the pages of a tech blog is now officially never dead. Polymer Vision, creator of the Readius ereader, has been shut down by its parent company. This company launched in 2004 with the goal of bring an ereader with a foldable 5" E-ink screen to market. They shipped an initial production run of about 100 thousand units before going bankrupt in 2009. Wistron bought the company out of receivership and has been paying to develop the screen tech. PV has made a number of prototypes over the past few years, but they never made it out of the lab. The closest we came to ever seeing one was a render of a smartphone design which could expand to the size of a tablet."

    Sounds like vaporware. The article is from 2011, has no source and no comments.

    1) The article is from mid 2011. 2) There is nothing in the article that says that it's dead. I want a news article posted on Slashdot. Let me make stuff up about it and post links to a year old article that says nothing that's in my summary. This is why I have been frequenting slashdot less and less... ( It used to be multiple times daily & is now maybe twice a week ).
