Prototype iPhone Flipphone

Motorola Razr Flip - closed

Earlier this month, PCMag posted an article on the Motorola Razr which demonstrated not only the full size phone display when opened, but a very impressive closed screen for all the “glance” information a user might want (and other models for those who prefer saving a few dollars).
