...if you live in Russia, Germany, France, Austria or Spain that is. The sort of concept that seemed too ridiculous adventurous to ever make it to market, the dual-screened YotaPhone is now available at €499 in European stores, and is expected to be picked up soon by UK retailers to be sold at around the £420 mark.
The YotaPhone runs Android, combining a standard 4.3-inch 720p LCD touchcreen up front with a 4.3-inch E-Ink screen around the back. A 1.7GHz dual-core processor, backed by 2GB of RAM, powers the handset. The idea is that the low-powered E-Ink screen can be left on at all times, only updating when new notifications come in, allowing you to take a glance at incoming messages without chewing through power reserves. It'll also be a fair bit more comfortable for lengthy reading sessions, while the fact that E-Ink screens retain the last image pushed to them even when out of juice could be useful for when the handset's battery does eventually completely conk out.
