Let's all play the patent game! Moto just received a patent for a reconfigurable multi-screen display. GoRumors and Engadget believe that the primary use of this technology would be to connect multiple phones together. Phandroid posits a much more practical use.

There wouldn't really be much use for this patent if it only covered connecting multiple phones together. However, this patent could also refer to a dual-screen smartphone. Imagine a Droid, where the keyboard was replaced with a second screen. Or, even better, imagine Moto's Nexus Two as a clamshell phone that opens to reveal dual 3.7” screens. Mmmm.

One of the few advantages that MIDs and PMPs have over smartphones is a larger screen size. If Moto could release a smartphone that could fold open to reveal a 7 inch + touchscreen, they'd be able to deliver a better viewing experience than any other similar device in the market.
