Transparent Foldable Tablet Phone By Sony Granted Patents

The Dutch magazine LetsGoDigital reports that Sony have been granted not just patents for transparent smartphones, but even for transparent foldable tablet phones.

At least three different modes of transparency are envisioned, ranging from fully transparent where you see through the foldable tablet phone in the area where the display is, to semi-transparent where you can still make out the background but with more focus on the objects on the display, and finally non-transparent as a regular display.

It goes to show that for the tablets and smartphones of the future, there is likely to be more to them than just faster processors and better cameras.
