Microsoft has filed a patent for a dual display phone. While there are many other dual display phones already, what sets Microsoftâ€™s application apart is that it would use as much of the back surface of the phone as possible, including even curling over the sides, and would ideally use a low-powered display, like e-ink, which would allow the device to display information which does not change very frequently, like the date and time, or Microsoft suggests possible device logos or tattoos.
They even suggest a novel application – when taking a photo of a person, the backside display of the camera could be set to provide a visual countdown so that the person knows when to freeze that smile: 3-2-1 will appear on the back display and then snap.
