    Not good news for me, the only thing I want to be curved is my crt tv for retro gaming, let´s hope they don´t start to push curved displays to all their lines.

    I'm glad to see curved screens have gained some level of popularity, with monitors at least it can make a big difference to the immersion factor. Curved ultra-wides are amazing for gaming.

    I always wondered what their real motivation was for curved products.

    Next time you visit a computer shop (which is becoming a rare thing these days with e-tail I know), go have a peek. Curved monitors work really well, I know I prefer it.

    The Galaxy Nexus from late 2011 was slightly curved even though it only had a 4.65" screen.
