Samsung to have flexible displays at CES 2013
Flexible screens are interesting for a number of reasons including the ability to have curved designs or possibly even folding smartphones and still have a large screen. The biggest benefit of the flexible smartphone screen is likely to be the ability to resist damage compared to a rigid screen that is prone to breaking when dropped.
CES 2013 kicks off in a few weeks and
reports that Samsung Display will be showing off a
pair of flexible screens
at the show that could appear in smartphone or TV designs.
One of the screens is a 5.5-inch flexible unit with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (267 PPI). The other screen is a much larger 55-inch unit designed specifically for use in TV sets.
Designing a smartphone screen that can flex requires more than simply creating the main components of the screen. Researchers for Samsung Display also have to develop a touch panel and screen covering that are flexible as well.

These would allow the phones they used in that show where the side slid out and the screen unrolled to make phone that was the size of an old candybar phone with a screen about the size of an iPad. Hold the electronics portion in your hand and have a 7" to 10" screen extend out from the side with very little weight to it. If it can roll into a diameter of about 1cm then that would work great.
Looks like someone is already working on it.
