Something weird is being brewed up in HTC's labs. The smartphone wars are heating up, and every manufacturer worth their salt is scrambling to find the Next Big Thing. HTC has put their innovative heads together and come up with a unique hinged design (WMPower User) for a smartphone. Other than the idea and a few patent drawings, we know nothing about what (if any) device will eventually pack this.

A hinged design could allow for two touchscreens to work together as one gigantic touchscreeen. HTC could create a phone with a small 3” touchscreen when folded in your pocket, that opens up to a 6” screen when unfolded. That would allow for some seriously great media browsing, movie watching, and texting experiences.

Here's to hoping we see a cellphone with this design in the near future! Don't let us down HTC.
