CURVED screens are getting a big push in TV land from Sony, Samsung and LG, and may in the smartphone world, too. LG recently introduced the ergonomic G Flex phone with a 6-inch screen that "follows the curvature of your face." Now rumors are flying of a larger-display iPhone 6 (with screen supplied by LG) that will also be mildly curvy.

Adding a little bend apparently enhances listening/talking, while flexibility in the OLED screen material improves durability. Curved or flat, next-gen Apple mobiles will drop soon.
