Samsung Galaxy Tab next-gen to sport flexible Super AMOLED screens?

Samsung has lifted the lid on a prototype transparent tablet featuring a radical flexible display, giving tech fans a tantalising glimpse at the future of its Galaxy Tab range of Android slates.

A video posted online and picked up by Venture Beat’s Jolie O'Dell shows the as yet unnamed concept slate being contorted into some mind-bending new shapes by its imaginary owner, with Sammy’s hallmark Super AMOLED screen tech present and correct to ensure there’s no compromise on display clarity.
