Winged Samsung mobile phone to take flight?

Behold it below:

SAMSUNG FOLDING KEYBOARD

According to Samsung, the design, for which it has sealed a patent, will enable users to "conveniently use various application programs through the mobile terminal”. That's opaque marketing speak for 'it'll also do away with the fiddliness associated with inputting text with slide out keyboards and touchscreens'.

Could it work? We’re not sure. Not least because the flip-out wings look a bit flimsy. That suggests they’ll provide scant ballast, which we feel is essential when typing. But we applaud Samsung’s effort anyway.
