    You can immediately declare a conversion from "Phone" sized device to "Tablet" sized device results from the unfolding of a Phone into a Tablet. :)

    Will the transformed "Tablet" be rejected as the form factor "Tablet" has already been rejected by consumers?, even though it sprouts from a "Phone" - an accepted form factor?

    Not all new technologies are accepted from the consumers, we have to wait and see ;).

    Just a thought, it looks like folding internally - at least as it has been implemented - makes a solid "crease" in the display - to me this seems like a built-in design flaw.

    And, even with "100,000" folds, at some point due to environment or hitting 100,001 folds, inevitiably it will crack and fail. At best it's got an ugly "crease" causing non-flat reflections and "blur".

    Why didn't they make a circular "folder" by either folding around the "outside" curve of the phone, or move the curve inside the phone halves, "folding" the screen around a circular folding point / rod - so the screen can gently curve instead of flat fold?

    Maybe next time? :)

    Pretty sure Google based the specs from MKBHD opinions. He already has it and he looked pretty confident. Though, I didn't like Dual Iron Man faces of Pixel Ultra.
