Samsung patents double-hinged clamshell design
Apr 5, 2007, 2:35 PM by (staff)
Samsung this week was granted a patent for a hinge design previously seen in some cases, but never electronic devices. The dual hinges will allow one half of the clamshell to rotate a full 360 degrees. This will allow the lid to close on either on the front or the back of the phone. Samsung envisions multiple keypads and interfaces on different faces of the two halves that are accessible depending on how the device is folded. The Nokia E90 uses a similar dual hinge design, however one side cannot fold completely behind the other.

It's zero secret what Samsung is "revealing" today, but plenty of details remain unconfirmed. We're live at Samsung's Unpacked event at MWC in Barcelona for the launch of the Galaxy S6.
Just don't see how this is a valid patent...
The flip out, flip over. The buttons on one side screen on the other. I mean, what is novel and patent worthy.
Not a blasted thing as far as I can tell. I swear, we should just chuck patents out the window. It's gotten to the point where anything can be patented regardless of whether it's innovative or not. I full heartedly expect to read in the news how some company has been granted the patent on a round cylindrical shaped device that helps with moving things by rolling on an axis....a.k.a. "the wheel".
