    Looks like a fantastic idea, with one minor exception. What happens if I place my hand on the back of the phone (while using the front of it)? Will I accidentally be touching things on the back when I'm trying to use the front, or do they have safe guards against that? Seems like it would be a really annoying feature if it doesn't work well.

    Other than that, I'd love to see what The Verge has to say about it. Could be my next phone.

      I wonder if it would be kinda like when you answer a call on an iPhone and put it up to your face the display is disabled. Maybe it can detect based on how you're holding?

      I think the lock icon at the bottom of the e-ink screen has something to do with this. Not sure though.

      At first I was thinking that it could have an accelerometer in it that tells which display is facing downward, therefore not being used... But, then laying in bed using your phone wouldn't work so... no idea.

      Palm rejection is totally a thing in tactile design, and probably most noticeable in tablet drawing apps where you're using a finger to draw. The question then is how accurate it would be.
