Just a styling...

It's just a styling thing. Like rounded corner. Though the slight curve should make it more comfortable in the bach pocket.

Now theres even less room to put a finger on one icon

Ridiculous and counter productive. It's difficult enough making sure you touch the right spot without hitting an adjacent key. Now it's almost guaranteed. I predict frustration levels will rise and this launch will sink.

Even less room on the face now to hit one key only

Frustration levels will rise and this launch will sink. It's hard enough to hit the right key or icon with a normal flat screen. Now they're crowded even more. Ridiculous.

Young people market: Skinny jeans

Teenagers and corporate are the main mobile markets. Trendy things are not (in theory) corporate drivers (until we see iPhones there). But teenagers carrying their phones in trousers pockets could see an advantage on the curved form, specially when the curve adapts better to front or back pockets.

Curved Phones. What next?
by sbeverid / October 15, 2013 9:01 PM PDT

Presumably the phone will be curved East West when held in the 'Portrait' position so what happens to the Curve when the phone is put into the 'Landscape' ? Conversely, it would tend to distort the screen. I can see n advantage in a 10" Tablet to get a slight stereoscopic effect but on a Smart Phone with the much smaller screen, I can't really see it being anything advantageous and probably more of a pain than a benefit. Just my opinion and I have been wrong before. The Roll-up flexible phone might go down well though.
