Microsoft patents Split DualScreen SmartPhone

Nokia isn't the only one patenting crazy futuristic technology (the type only seen in Sci-Fi Flicks), because Microsoft is also busy in its R&D labs cooking up stuff you only see on the SyFy Channel!
In this latest patent filed by Microsoft, You will soon be able to use 2-in-1 phone, yup, a phone thats not a phone but 2 phones, sound confusing enough for you?
Then check out the concept video for this technology:


So you will soon be able to carry a dual screen phone, that you can detach from each other and they will still be able to work independently, for example you can be on a phone call on one half, while playing "words by post" on the other screen (actually you can still do this on a single screen phone).

Microsoft filed the patent to the USPTO and here is a snippet of what they claim it does...

1. A mobile communications device comprising: a first separated module having a first display, the first separated module being operative to: receive a first accelerometer reading from a second separated module, determine a proximity to the second separated module based at least in part on the second accelerometer reading, determine a first portion of a user interface based at least in part on the first proximity, and display the first portion of the user interface to the first display; the second separated module having a second display, the second separated module being operative to: receive a second accelerometer reading from the first separated module, determine the proximity to the first separated module based at least in part on the second accelerometer reading, determine a second portion of the user interface based at least in part on the second proximity, and display the second portion of the user interface to the second display.


2. The mobile communications device of claim 1, wherein the first separated module is configured to combine with the second separated module to form a combined module.

3. The mobile communications device of claim 1, wherein the first separated module is further operative to: determine a first operation based on the first accelerometer reading, and execute the first operation on at least one of: the first separated module and the second separated module, and wherein the second separated module is further operative to: determine a second operation based on the second accelerometer reading, and execute the second operation on at least one of: the first separated module and the second separated module.




4. The mobile communications device of claim 3, wherein the first operation and the second operation are further operative to manipulate a representation of at least one of: the first portion of the user interface and the second portion of the user interface.

5. The mobile communications device of claim 4, wherein the first operation and the second operation are further operative to manipulate a representation of at least one of: the first portion of the user interface and the second portion of the user interface by at least one of the following: zooming into at least one of: the first portion the user interface and the second portion of the user interface, zooming out of at least one of: the first portion the user interface and the second portion of the user interface, and rotating at least one of: the first portion the user interface and the second portion of the user interface.




 


I expect Microsoft will collaborate with Nokia and release a dual screen, dual quad core, dual LED flash, dual SIM, Dual HD carls zeiss camera lens Phone and Nokia should call it the "Nokia Duo" (can someone create this concept and email it to me :)
