    Unique Yotaphone 2 Makes Appearance at MWC 2014


    Here's an interesting new smartphone called the Yotaphone 2. This one of a kind Android smartphone is equipped with a second, e-ink display on the backside of the handset. The display on the front of the device works just like any other Android display would, but on the rear, you're presented with a 4.7-inch touch sensitive always on e-ink screen that can be used to interact with calls, texts, emails, and your favorite social media sites.

    The e-ink panel isn't only great to look at, but the company said that it also contributes to better battery life. Yota Devices claims that the 2,500mAh battery can power the phone for more than 50 hours when using just the e-ink display. The phone also features a Smart Power Mode, which shuts off the 5-inch, 1080p, full color AMOLED display, diverting battery power to the much more efficient e-ink display.

    Not all Android apps work with the second screen, but the company did release the phone's SDK to third-party developers, which will hopefully open up the floodgates to some cool and unique apps for the smartphone.

    Specs include:
    Android 4.4
    2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU
    2GB of RAM
    8-megapixel rear shooter
    2-megapixel shooter up front
    2.500mAh battery

    No official word on availability, price, and launch information, but CNET reports that the device will be initially be sold in Russia, Europe, and the Middle East, with China and the United States expected to get the phone by the end of the year. We'll be keeping an eye out for this one.

    Man I really really really like this device. I am going to have to switch carriers as I am sure this will be GSM only. I am thinking of killing my VZW and going with straight talk just so I can start getting some of these new devices. I hope it hits the US!

    I tend to agree with you - it's really cool looking, and yes, it probably would be GSM only when it hits the states.

    Good stuff!
